Just remember that I love you sweet friend, even though we are separated by the miles. If I can do anything to help you, please don’t hesitate to let me know. I will continue to pray for you & all the family!

    Dearest Mary, I was so sorry to read this about your husband. I wish I could hug you right now. No words will ever make it right or make the pain go away. God is faithful though to send people to help you get through. I am praying right now for God to comfort you and bring you the peace that only He can give. I will be talking to you as you begin your life without your husband. Cherish every moment that you had with him and ponder those things in your heart. I love you, my dear, sweet friend!
