    Dear Gloria and Family
    Words cannot express how sorry we are for your loss, but God will get you through. I am sending my favorite poem to you. When I read it, it always helps me to cope with death of loved ones.
    I said a prayer for you today
    And know God must have heard.
    I felt the answer in my heart
    Although he spoke no word!
    I didn't ask for wealth or fame
    (I knew you wouldn't mind) –
    I asked him to send treasures
    Of far more lasting kind!
    I asked that he'd be near you
    At the start of each new day
    To grant you health and blessings
    And friends to share your way!
    I asked for happiness for you
    In all things great and small –
    But it was for his loving care
    I prayed the most for!
