Dear Binks, Michelle, Karyn, Sandra, Edith, and other members of the Blake and Allicock Family,
Words cannot express how deeply sorry I am for your loss.
I just wanted to let you know that my dear friend, Delie (Madeline), will be missed terribly. My heart is truly saddened by her death, and I feel a real sense of loss. Friends like Delie are few in life and it is with a heavy heart that I also grieve with your loss.
Throughout the years, I have valued Delie’s friendship, kindness, and thoughtfulness. I will sorely miss all of our laughs, conversations, and the times we spent together enjoying each other’s company. I will always keep her gestures of caring, and goodwill deeply within my heart to remind me of our beautiful friendship. Friends are like angels set upon this earth, and Delie was one of these angles who stood beside me throughout the years through thick and thin. Her friendship meant the world to me, and I couldn’t have asked for a more genuine friend than Delie. Your loss is also my loss. May God give all of you the strength to deal with this painful loss, because words cannot heal the pain of losing someone so dear.
Please let God’s promise that He would “NEVER LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE YOU”, and the fact that we are sharing in your sorrow, and are lifting you up in prayer, COMFORT AND HELP ALL OF YOU THROUGH THE DAYS AHEAD.
Your friend, and Delie’s friend,
On behalf of the Gill’s family, please accept our deepest sympathy.
