DEATH THE ULTIMATE BOON
While we are, death is not, when it has come we are not. It is a false belief that it only follows. It also precedes lfie. It is as before we were born. Death is the end of all sorrow. It either secures happiness or ends suffering. It frees the slave from its cruel master, the prison doors, calms the qualms of pain, closes the struggle of poverty. It is the last and best boon of Nature, for it frees man from all cares.
G.M.S. expresses its heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families and prays to God to grant eternal peace to the departed souls and strength to their families to bear with fortitude their irreparable loss.
