Jackie and Eddie, Mike and Sons and Philip and family, I honestly don’t know how much more a family can handle. This has been a really hard year for all of you. I’ve been praying for all of you for your comfort and peace this year and I will continue with my prayers. If I can help in any way please let me know.
