We sorrow and weep with you in this time of your great loss. May the Lord comfort your grieving hearts.

I thought the song at the memorial service called "The Lord of the Small" by Johanna Anderson was truly fitting. God certainly looks with mercy-filled eyes upon His children. Jennifer knows the riches of His mercy now more than she ever did in this life. (Ephesians 2:4).
