    Dear Garvey Family,
    I just wanted to say how sorry I am to learn of your loss. May the God of all comfort sustain you during this difficult time. I have also found the following promises to be comforting John 5:28,29 about the resurrection hope as well as Rev. 21:4 where God promises to do away with all the things that cause us suffering and pain including death forever. It is my sincere hope that these thoughts comfort your family t this time.

    I knew your mom and dad through Tri-C West Elder’s program.
    They were part of a program we presented where we sang and danced. They were a wonderful pair and so much fun to be around.
    They were our George and Gracie. What a blessing they were. I am so sorry but have great memories.
