    I am so sorry for your loss. Ms. Levy touched so many lives. May your precious memories help you through this most difficult time. May you find comfort in God promises at Isaiah 41:10 ” Do not be afraid, for I am with you.
    Do not be anxious, for I am your God.
    I will fortify you, yes, I will help you,
    I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness.’”
