To the family and friends,
Even though a stranger, I feel compelled to share my feelings with you about the comfort that I received from the Bible when I lost my father, brother, and husband, in the hope that it may bring you some comfort, too. I still feel sad about what has happened to ones lost in death due to natural disasters, such as Katrina, and other unforeseen events. I do not want to deepen your sorrow, but just to offer some comforting thoughts from a wise ancient lawyer, more famously known as the apostle Paul of the Holy writings, that helped me in my time of sorrow. He said to remember "the God of comfort" who comforts us in all our sorrow. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4.) This has been my source of peace and can be yours, too. God will comfort. This has helped me and I hope this little seed of comfort will sprout for you. Just know that many people do care and have not forgotten. When things like this happen, all of our hearts are broken. We care, too.
