Dear Family Members

I wish to offer my deepest sympathy due to the passing of Mrs Winter nee Rice.

Few things cause more stress or heartache than the death of a mate, relative or dear friend.

The Bible says at Psalm 34:15 ‘The eyes of Jehovah are on the righteous, and his ears listen to their cry for help.” Expressing our feelings in prayer to God is more than good therapy or a means of organizing our thoughts. It actually helps to establish a personal relationship with the Creator, who can use his power to comfort us.

I sincerely hope that this brief note will be of some practical help during the grieving process.

My condolences to the family. Mrs. Winter was my principal at St. Peter’s Girls’ School a long time ago. I remember her as being strict but fair and always ready to listen to us as children. She was one of the best examples of how
a primary school teacher and principal. May God bless you.
