  • lily"I am very sorry to read of your loss. With Mrs. Puyear accomplishments, her love and joys, she was an amazing woman! I won't pretend to know what you're going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love, is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort. One Scripture that gives me hope is, John 11:25, which says, Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life. I hope that this verse will also comfort you and, I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved mother, grandma and friend.
