Friend Comfort Card was sent by Mackie Stewart .

My dear Josh, my heart aches with you today, and will for a long while - perhaps forever. Loss feels cruel, and things feel like they are crashing around us sometimes, don't you think? But Josh, you have always warmed my soul and I feel this same warmth in your father's image. Stay warm my dear friend, let yourself crumble, but stay warm. Know you are loved by so many. You are especially loved be your dear friend Mackie.
