comfort you and He will for the Lord is Good indeed and does not willingly afflict his children.

It is so hard for you and I pray that you may be comforted - I know your sorrow Every pang has been mine alone and it seems almost beyond our strength to bear.

I have been here in my sweet old home some weeks and in its quiet have much time to think and hope for you - God bless and bring you comfort is my constant prayer for you - I am dear Mrs Stanford always -
