  1. Our family prayers are with you all. The words to say are hard and being together very important for the good and bad times. Sorry to be so far away and not being in contact but I still feel like a friend. Give each other lots of hugs SuSu

  2. Words cannot express how truly sorry I am for your loss. I am grateful for the fact that I had the strength and courage to do what I felt I had no choice to do, which is helping those in their hour of need. Even though at times I wish the Lord would have granted me a moments more notice to help the one we lost. My heart and soul is still laden with much sorrow, but I know that with the Lords help; I will succeed as others will too, in rejoicing and knowing that He has called one of His children home to paradise.

    May the Lord bless you, and keep you; May the Lord make His face shine on you, and be gracious to you; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace. Amen.
