I was saddened to hear of Aunt Bessie's demise. Words fall short of expressing my sorrow for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you and with Aunt Bessie as she enters into eternal peace.

It's difficult at such a time to find the words that say,
The things that one could only hope will comfort you, today.
But it may help a bit to know that there are near at hand,
Those who keep you close in thought, Those who understand.
People just can't know the sorrow that another has to bear,
But they can express sympathy and show how much they care.
Aunt Bessie was a person I looked up to.
