    In this time of sadness, may these promises comfort Mrs. Galasso and her family. Jehovah God is close to the brokenhearted, and saves those who are crushed in spirit. And he will wipe away the tears from all faces. Psalms 34:18; Isaiah 25:8 NWT. Peace and happy memories be with you, dear family.
