    Honey, l am so sorry to hear of your loss…read your message on FB. You are in my thoughts and prayers to help you get through this heartbreak. And you will grieve, but Jehovah will help you to cope with the plague of your heart. Carolyn Maull said l cried for two years over Danny, and it was expected, he had been so sick for years. I can only imagine the pain you’re going through now, but l know how He cares for the widow in her despair. He was there for me and Willa, and He will comfort you now in His everlasting arms.

    love always, Janice Bolick

    I am so sorry for your loss, my thoughts and prayers are with the family.
    It’s so hard to lose a parent and to stay strong. There are many people to lean on, I’m one of them if you need me.
