  7. I am very saddened to hear about Gails passing my deepest condolences to family and friends. The pain of losing a loved one is indescribable and sometimes we may feel like we are alone. Psalms 34:18 assures us that “Jehovah is close to the broken-hearted and he saves those who are crushed in spirit.” God would like for you to to reach out to him during this time of sorrow and he will comfort you. I will I Clyde you in my prayers.
