Joyce and Family, I am so sorry for your tremendous loss. I have been continually praying for you and all as I know that grief is a process and you never "get over" losing someone you love or missing them in this life. My prayer for you: 2 Corinthians 1:3-5 New International Version (NIV) 3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 5 For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. With Love, Joyce's friend, Sandra Dilley
