To our beloved Papa who is bereft of Beloved Mama who has gone.
Rev. A. Pali: Let there be endless affection between us. Whereas when we saw in the Newspaper that our dearly beloved mother, Mrs. Lilia Paaoao Pali has gone, and whereas the Almighty has graciously taken her dear breath, and whereas at her passing, she left beloved Papa without mama, and the children without a mother, the grandchildren without a grandparent, and so too her fellow laborers in the work of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, we are your children with hearts filled with grief for our beloved mama who has passed.
We join in the lamentation with you with grief for her, carrying together the burdens of sorrow and sadness.
It is our prayer that the sad and dejected thoughts of you, your children, and grandchildren are lessened.
It is true, it is He who giveth and it is He who taketh away.
Let Him be praised and lighten our sadness.
We, your children and grandchildren.
