To the family and frienda of Ms. Knigge,

I shared this with you to encourage you; please accept my condolences. I hope that you find comfort, peace, and strength in the Bible, the Word of our Father, the God of all comfort. (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4) Please, remember the promise He made, that those sleeping in death will awaken. (Acts 24:15; John 5:28, 29)
