  11. Nie ma takich słów, które oddałyby żal jaki czujemy po stracie bliskich i takich, które mogłaby nas w takiej chwili pocieszyć, dlatego jedynie napiszę, zamknęły się za nią bramy na ziemi, by mogły otworzyć się przed nią bramy niebios, gdzie nie istnieje pośpiech, ból ani smutek.
    Please accept our deepest condolences for your family’s loss

  14. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this time of loss. This is seldom an easy passage for those that remain and attempt to move forward. The steps taken are short and do not always feel like they move you. Take the time to cry and feel this loss. It will help you and your family heal, if in fact one ever really does.
