Dear Hester Family: I am so sorry for the loss of Crystal. Please accept my sincere condolences. It breaks our hearts when death separates us from the ones we love so much especially when they are as young as Crystal. The Bible assures us that God sees our pain and sorrow and has promised that soon “death will be no more.”(Revelation 21:4) He will heal our broken hearts by resurrecting our precious loved ones to life again.(John 6:40) Until then, I hope the memories of Crystal and these promises from God comfort you in the days to come.
