  3. Dear Bakula Family,
    I am so sorry for your loss please accept my sincere condolences at this time. Something that I have found to be a great source of comfort is the thoughts expressed in the Bible at John 5:28,29 where we see that there is going to be a resurrection of those who have died. Also at Revelation 21:4 we see that God is going to eliminate all of the causes for why we deal with sorrow,pain and even death itself. It is my sincere hope that these thoughts bring your family comfort at this time. Once again I am so sorry for your loss.

  4. Mark , Shelley, and family,

    You are all in our thoughts and prayers. May you find strength in your memories and know that she will be with you always.

    Chris and Sharon Schaeffer
