“My heartfelt sympathy to Mindy's family and friends; to lose someone with so much left to share with the world is terribly difficult. I never had the privilege of meeting Mindy, but it sounds like she was a wonderful wife and mother and I am sure that she has many wonderful memories for you to look back on. May these memories and the hope of a future resurrection bring you comfort and hope as you begin to heal. (Acts 24:15; Revelation 21:4) My deepest condolences to Mindy's family and friends. ”
