    What a beautiful woman, Mrs. Guidotti was. I am very sorry to read of your loss. With her accomplishments, her love and joys, she was an amazing woman. I won’t pretend to know what you’re going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love, is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort. One Scripture that gives me hope is, Rev. 21:4, which says: “And he [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” The Bible gives us hope that one day our dead loved ones will come back to life. I hope that this verse will also comfort you, and I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved mother, grandma, sister and friend. Sincerely, Meryl, –
