    Dear Leah and children,
    I was so grieved to read if your husband’s death. It must be such a shock. I am praying right now that the Lord comforts you and you find your peace in Him. He is going to take care of you and your precious babies.
    I knew you when you were a baby and your parents and grandparents are dear people. We moved from Butternut when you were about 3, so you wouldn’t remember us. My heart grieves with you, Leah. God bless and keep you.
