    Dear Amy & Family,

    We are so sorry for your loss. We don't pretend to know the sorrow you are feeling. Please know we care that you are suffering, and our thoughts and prayers are with you. May the Holy Spirit comfort you and give you strength as you mourn. May the LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace (Numbers 6:24-26).

    With Deepest Sympathy,
    Shelley & Michael Bodine
    (Genette Heinz's daughter & son-in-law)
