  1. My deepest sympathy and condolences go to the family of Mrs. Moriarty. It is a very sad time when we lose someone we love. We remember the good times we had with them and how much we love them. When we loose someone we love the Bible gives us a comforting message to help us cope with their death. This message is found at Revelation 21:3, 4 and Isaiah 33:24. May these words bring you comfort as they did me when my mother died. Deepest Sympathy, Ms. Floyd
