Not sure what to say?

I'm sorry this message is so late. Rest in Peace and God Bless Your Family.

Ms. Richman and family: So sorry for this horrific loss to you again. I hope the Lord gives you the peace that surmounts all understanding. To comfort you if only for a minute will you picture your precious little girl greeting her daddy when he arrived. Someone wise said "if we only knew we wouldn't be afraid or sad".

May your family find peace and love in the memories of your loved one - Jeremy. May you be comforted by the outpouring of love surrounding you.

Dear Jennifer:
I have spoke to God today,and asked him to help you through your heartbreak.I asked that he carry you in your times of weakness,to embrace you with love and comfort you, to bring your heart peace, and to give you strength for each day passing day. I of course don't know you personally, but I wish I could be there to put my arms around you and help you somehow. My heart has been broken before by tragedy, so I understand some of the pain, yet I feel that only time can heal...

I cannot imagine the pain that Jeremy must have been feeling that drove him to take his own life. So incredibly sorry. I heard him on the Dan Harris 10% Happier podcast and was inspired by all your family has done in the wake of losing your precious Avielle. Im committed to spreading the message of your foundation as its work is needed desperately

I would like to express my deepest sympathies for the loss of your loved one. May you find comfort and strength in God during this time of sorrow.
