  1. My husband and I would like to express our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of your beloved Daphne. Although we never had the privilege of knowing Daphne, we would like to share with you comfort from God’s Word found in John 5:28,29. Here we are given the wonderful hope of the resurrection of our dear loved ones here on earth, just as Lazarus was in John 11. Draw comfort in knowing that our Heavenly Father knows the pain of losing one so dear to us. (Psalm 34:18) Remember also, to share your memories with those who knew and loved her, for memories shared are memories cherished, may they bring peace and joy to your hearts as you begin to heal. Take care of yourselves and each other during this very difficult time.
