My heart and prayers go out to the family of precious Cara. Such a tragic loss of life taken so young. I pray for peace in your hearts, healing for your souls, mercy for the days ahead that seem unbearably difficult and for the love and support to surround you in the moments when you feel overwhelmed with sadness and emptiness. Just breath, take one day at a time ... embrace the precious memories of Cara. (Jeremiah 29:11) Pray for a new tomorrow when life will not be burdened with senseless tragedies such as this but when all will live in peaceful unity.
