    My dearest Jocelyn,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. May you find peace in the days to come with all the loving thoughts that surround you. I’m certain that John had a good heart, otherwise you wouldn’t have fallen in love and married him.
    I remember how he was always so willing to help me with the things I needed. As well as sacrificing his time to allow you to help me too. I look forward to seeing him in the resurrection free of the depression and pain that was so difficult for him.
    Please stay focused on the good times in the past with John and those yet to come with him in God’s promised paradise.

    Love always,
