  2. Dear Dennis family,

    Although not knowing Ms. Dennis or your family personally, I want to offer my condolences for your loss. The pain is tremendous from the death of a loved one. It is my hope that you are strengthened from this experience and use this opportunity to increase appreciation and affection for your family. As I examine the obituaries and the various ages of individuals that have passed, it emphasizes to me how short life is and how important it is to take advantage of every day of life. We know soon that our Creator will do away with this wicked foe death (Rev 21:3-4) and allow us to live life as he originally intended. It is my hope that you find comfort in these few words.

    My heart, though filled with grief, rejoices that I knew of a beautiful woman since our childhood. God will continue to cover you with His grace and mercy. His loving arms embrace each of you and His stronghold cannot be broken. Your mother is at peace and at the feet of our loving Savior telling the story of the tender love of her family. You are blessed. You are each a blessing.
