Dear Mrs Bell
The ladies of the Red Cross Society wish to extend to you and Mr Bell their sincere sympathy in your great sorrow.
Words are empty after all in times like these. They wolly fail to express our feelings, but we want you to know that we care.
After all how noble and what a glorious thing to give ones life for others.
"It is nature that but faith is strong."
God Bless you and sustain you and yours through these dark hours, in the prayers of our hearts
The Ladies of the Red Cross Society
