So sorry Judy! Thinking of you and your family. Praying God's love will strengthen and help you through this difficult time. Losing parents is the ending of one link of your life. The ones who knew you the longest and loved you unconditionally are no longer there to support you, but you have comfort in the Lord that you will meet again.

Your family has always been a comfort to me and my family. Love, Jan
