Condolence: Julie and I knew each other in high school, but mostly from attending the First Baptist Church. I fondly remember her clarinet solo one Sunday that was just beautiful to hear. She was great with the younger kids and always seemed to have a encouraging words for those who needed them.
Sadly, I will not be able to attend her service, but will be thinking of Julie and her family during this difficult period.
Condolence: The loss of a cherished loved one is the most devastating experiences a family can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable. Please know that there are family and friends who care and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. He is the God of all comfort. God will comfort you during this difficult time of grief. Our prayers are also with you and your family.
Condolence: I remember sitting next to Julie in the woodwind section in middle school and walking the halls with her trying to get to our next class in high school. She will be missed and you have my condolences.
