    Dear Dayka family,
    We send our deep condolences to all your precious family and pray that the Lord God would comfort and give you strength. A sobering but truthful and relevant Bible verse came to mind:
    “It is better go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his heart.” (Ecclesiastes 7:2)
    We pray that even during this difficult time God would use it to draw all of you and every person to Himself.
    May we all be reminded about the brevity and uncertainty of our time here on earth and to think more about eternity. Also praying that every person would know the love of God and what He did for us through Christ Jesus! Bless you all!
    With love, Balazs & Christina
