I am very sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort be with you during this difficult time. May your memories bring you comfort. My heartfelt condolences to the family during this time of sorrow. (1Corinthains 15:26) (Isaiah 61:1,2) Please find peace in knowing that He understands your grief and He cares. 1 Peter 5:6,

My sincere condolences to the family of Dr. Smith. May prayer help strengthen and comfort you during this difficult time. (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

Dr. Smith was an amazing instructor. He was always willing to help and keep you moving forward. Sometimes it was with a joke other times it was with wise advice about dentistry. I always appreciated the time that he put in to help me become the dentist I am today. My condolences to the family. May God's love shower you with peace as you mourn the loss of Dr. Smith.

May God Bless You and Keep You Resting In Peace. I remember your humorous matter-of-fact ways of explaining things. Rest in Peace, God's Child.
