To the Propst Family: Sending my condolences for the loss of your dear loved one. I have a thought in mind I'd love to share regarding a strong belief in a loving God who brings comfort. The Bible says at Psalm 34:15: "The eyes of Jehovah are on the righteous, and his ears listen to their cry for help." Expressing our feelings in prayer to God is more than good therapy or a means of organizing our thoughts. It actually helps us to establish a personal relationship with our Creator, who can use his power to comfort us.

To the Propst family I send my heartfelt condolences. I hope that the memories you have of Pete will outweigh the sorrow you may feel in his absence. Pray to God for support and comfort during this emotional time and may you all have peace. -Philippians 4:6, 7
