    Dear Howard family,
    Please accept my deep regrets for your loss. You don’t know me but I wanted to share what helped me when I lost my whole family to this enemy death that always brings pain and grief. I found comfort and hope in what Jehovah Gods word the Bible says at John11:11 and Mark5:39 that they’re just asleep and Jesus also states at John5:28,29 that I’ll see them again and this helps me get through each day because I miss them so much. I truly hope these scriptures have helped in some way because this is my purpose in sharing this with you. Please know I share your grief and you’re in my thoughts and prayers.
    Sincerely, Gloria Mosley

I’m sorry I won’t be at the church, but I can’t get out of work. Here is my number if anyone wants to talk. 252-473-7073. I care for all of you and I love Leon. I miss him.
