I would like to offer deep sympathy to the family of Ms.Louise Felts Pittman
no doubt she will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her
continue to cherish your fondest memories of her ,
and know that God (Psalms 83:18) will help you to endure the loss of your dear loved one...
(1 Peter 5:7) READS : " while you throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you "
this is reassurance that God will help you get through this grievous time.. He's inviting you to throw all your anxiety on him , so that he can fortify you and help you with your problems
