  1. My deepest sympathy in the loss of Mary Lou. I was not able to know her personally but from reading about her here I can see she was well loved and my heart goes out to those who will miss her greatly. When I lost my grandfather, I leaned on the scriptures for hope and comfort. One such scripture in Revelation 21:3,4. The promise there that soon there will be no more pain, sorrow or even death, gives me such hope! I hope you too can draw comfort from our heavenly fathe who, according to Psalms 34:18, is near to those that have broken hearts.
