    May God provide you enough strength to face these difficult times, although no words can really help to ease the loss you bear, just know that you are very close in every thought and prayer.

    I am sorry for your loss. I got to meet your Mom & Dad when I was working @ Walmart Pharmacy & at church. They were a great inspiration especially at church. May they rest in peace. My prayers go out all your family members. God Bless You!
