The entire community shares your grief. Although there are no words that can take away your pain, we have a heavenly Father who will one day wipe all of our tears away. Call on Him early in the morning and late in the midnight hour, He hears and He cares. Most of all He loves us!

I am praying for you all. Trust God.

In the Masters Love,

Words cannot truly comfort the pain and hurt you feel. I do know one who can ease all pain, that person is Jesus. Stay close to him call on him and he will be there when no one else is. My prayer for your family is peace,comfort and justice.
