My sincere condolence for the loss of your mother I can truly relate. Losing a mother in death can be extremely devastating. May the memories you all have of her ease the pain of her absence and you find comfort in God’s promise during this most difficult time. John 5:28,29
I wish to express my condolences for the loss of your dear Mrs. Conerly. The God of heavens shares your loss.  He provides wonderful hope for the future (John 5:28-29; Psalm 37:11, 29, 39; Revelation 21:3-5).  Jesus taught us to pray for that marvelous time at Matthew 6:9-10.  Please reach out your heavenly Father for the comfort that you need (2 Corinthians 1:3-4; Psalm 34:18).  The link below is to a short video about His plans for your precious Mrs. Conerly; it is my sincere wish that it will be of great benefit to you as it has been to me over the years:  May the peace of God be with all of you (Philippians 4:6-7).
