    Dear Deb and Steve: I was so sorry to learn of the loss of Steve’s brother. My heart broke for the both of you and all of the family. The void can never be filled but may you find comfort and peace in knowing that, thanks to our wonderful Lord Jesus Christ, death has been conquered and Gerard’s candle is burning brightly with our Lord. You know how much we love you. Know that we are always here for you. With our deepest sympathy.
