Dear Kirkwood Family,
You have my condolences for your loss. The anxieties of life we endure now are hard to deal with. The words at Isaiah may help. "Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness."

I am so saddened by Laurie's passing. Although it has been a while since I've seen her, I have wonderful memories of her and her bright smile. I am keeping you and your family in my prayers.
