To the family,
Please accept my condolences on the loss of your loved one. I hope you too can find the words at Psalms 34:18 and 2 Corinthians 1:3,4.
To the Hughes family I send my deepest condolences. My heart hurts for you because I lost my grandmother to cancer as well. I hope you can find the same comfort in the Bible as I did during this difficult time. I hope scriptures such as Rev 21:4 can soothe your heart where we see Gods promises that we can all look forward to.
