    I read the obituary about the loss of Mr. Williams and I extend
    my sincere condolences. At this time you are feeling an
    unbearable pain, and experiencing a great loss. Psalms 46:1
    says, “God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily
    found in times of distress.”
    He will help you get through this difficult time. (Isaiah 41:10)
    I hope this brief Bible message has brought you a measure
    of comfort during this difficult time.
