    I am sorry to hear about Elizabeth’s passing. I had the good fortune and honor of cutting her hair during her life. She had visited me at my home and they when she moved to Newark and remarried, she came to my place of business for some time. She truly was a wonderful person and we would talk about the south. (I had my early years in Norfolk, VA.) She always had a special place in my heart, and am glad that I met her.

    So sorry to hear of the loss of your dear loved one. I too have experienced that deep pain of loss. So, I look for ways to comfort others. I hope that you may find comfort in Job 14:14,15, which assures us that Almighty God has not only the power, but the desire to resurrect our dear loved ones.
