Condolence letter

To the Family of Rashaunda Renee Fitzgerald;

There isn’t any way to prepare for the sudden loss of a family member. In the quiet moments when the hurt is hard to bear, may love become your shelter and may the beauty of memories become your comfort.

You have the sympathies of the members of St. Paul’s A.M.E. Church as you make your way through this passage. It won’t be easy, but you can rely on the support of all your friends and church family. Rashaunda will be missed by everyone.

Our prayers are with you and you have our deepest sympathy in this time of sorrow. Rashaunda's short time here touched a lot of people. Just look around at her family and friends that are here to celebrate her life.

“Don't weep at my grave, for I am not there,
I've a date with a butterfly to dance in the air.
I'll be singing in the sunshine, wild and free,
Playing tag with the wind, while I'm waiting for thee.”

In His Service Always,

Please accept my heartfelt condolences on Shaunda's passing. I taught Shaunda in 10th grade English at Uniontown High School. I am absolutely heartbroken for all of her friends and family members. Please know that she touched many people in her life and that her death is being felt in the hearts of each of us.

Sorry for the loss of your precious Rashaunda. When we lose a child in death, the pain, grief, and feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. Times like these, we sometimes wonder does God care. We can b sure that he does and will right the wrongs in this world by means of his kingdom. This is what we r praying 4 in the Our Father/Lord's prayer.(let your kingdom come) Matt 6:9,10. God promise's "The meek shall live on the earth and live forever upon it"( Psalms 37:10,11, Rev 21:3,4.30) www.jw.org
