  2. My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Samuel. I pray for serenity and comfort during this difficult time, as there are no words that can ease the feelings you are experiencing right now.

    The prayer is as follows: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

    As the family continues to live life a little differently now, I pray that God holds you and continues to cover your family in serenity.

    Sending love and light,
