I would like to extend my deepest sympathy in the loss of your dear loved one Mary Mildred Sprankle. I hope you find the below Bible verse comforting during this time of sorrow. Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

Please accept my condolences on the passing of Mary. I know her and Murph are probably having a long overdue chat right now and just happy as the dickens to be together again. The rest of my family said to give you their heartfelt condolences as well.
