Dear Garcia family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Mary Ann. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones as well as do away with all causes we have for suffering, including sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts will comfort your family also.

My heart is saddened to read Mary Ann's obituary. Your mom was an angel here on earth. She radiated love and kindness. May God comfort each of her family members and friends and may her loving memory live within each of you.
