    To the Allen family,
     I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother please accept my sincere condolences. The heartache and pain that comes from losing someone you love is hard to bear. God never ment for mankind to live a short while and die. This is proof that death is a real enemy of mankind and God promises to fix it. John 5:28-29 says that all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice .. to a resurrection of life. Until that time comes put your trust in God's word's, and may the God of all comfort give your family the strength needed to get through the difficult days ahead. My prayers are with your family.
