  2. Dear Rob and Family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I lost my mother a year and a half ago and can sympathize with what your family is going through right now. I will keep you all in my prayers this week as I know the Lord can comfort in a way that nothing else can. I couldn’t help but to think just now as I wrote this, .Gee Lord, maybe my mother and Eunice have met already and are sitting together sharing about their families and maybe even praying together.. That is comforting isn’t it? God Bless! Cheryl Jester Christ Community Church
