To the Dunlap Family,
There are no words powerful enough to express sorrow for your loss. Death is an uncomfortable subject. Many people prefer not to talk about it. But sooner or later, we must confront it. And the sting of death is sharp and painful. The anguish of death will be done away with. God promises in the very near future to do away with death.
(Revelation. 21:4,5) I offer my deepest sympathy in the passing of your beloved and I hope that this scripture will bring you comfort at this most difficult time.
