    To Bruce and family,
    Knowing you since school days, it is with great sadness I see the passing of your mother. She was special at Woodwards, and always had a kind and encouraging word for you when you came “flying” into the office, perhaps late because of traffic or riding a bike from U of C to the store. She would get you calmed down, comfortable and ready for work!!! I appreciated and looked forward to seeing her every time I had a shift, and of course, outside the store as well. Please pass on my condolences to your family for me. Thank you.

    I am very sorry for your loss and my condolences to all. The pain of death can be overwhelming no matter what the age. The Bible provides comfort during difficult times. We are promised at 1 Corinthians 15:26 that very soon “death will be brought to nothing.” Then we have the prospect of being reunited with our loved ones right here on earth. – Psalm 37:10, 11 I hope this brings you comfort and hope.
