Dear Board Members
I would like to express my honest condolences on the recent passing of Bob’s mother. You and I send the prayers to his family at this difficult moment.
Although I never meet Bob mother, the time I spent with Bob as my mentor at Champlain College and serving on my foundation and all other things that he have done to me so far. All this has shows me what kind of a family background he comes from and I can see his mother in him and how painful this loss is.
There is nothing in this world that is more painful than the loss of a relative
I lost my parents long time ago as you all know but it was not that long ago that I lost my closer cousin and a wife of my other closer cousin. They passed way two weeks ago, so I have some of idea of what Bob, his family, and relatives are going through. It is painful, totally painful. Totally, no comfort in him, his family and relatives at this movement, there is no comfort that is quite enough to replace the loss, the loss like this. This is the loss that will never be replaced and I pray hard and ask you all to join me in prayer so that God can give Bob and his family a power of comfort in this difficult time.
Please Bob, pass our deepest sympathies on to your wife, your children, grandchild, and the rest of your relatives.
May Almighty lord rest your mother in peace.
