Dear Chamberlain family,
Please accept my deepest sympathy. May loving memories feel ur heart with comfort and joy. May you also take comfort in God's promise that "He will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."
