    I was told this message left on a funeral card was too wordy.
    “Thinking of you at this time of sorrow, with prayers for strength, and comfort from above.
    Our love and hugs, for your weeping hearts are deeply felt.”

    Please, can you tell me how you would rewrite this? Your time and correction is greatly appreciated.
