To the family and friends of Ms. TenHaaf,

I am a volunteer minister and reach out to those in the community who have lost someone they loved in death. Please accept my sincerest condolences due to the loss of Karen. Losing someone we love in death is never easy. That is why God promises us that soon: "Death will be no more, and neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." (Revelation 21:4).
