    I very sadden to. here the passing of your sister and my cousin. she was so bright and. full of light. as the bible said she now have hope Of a resurrection notice s at ecclesiastics. chapter 7:1-3. a good name is better than good oil and the day Of death is better than the day of birth betterto go to the house of mourning than to the house of feasting for that is the end of every man. and living. should take. it .to heart.better is distress than laughter, for the sadness of the face makes the heart better.
