HUGS Lauri and Coll. It's always hard when you have to say final good byes. We lost Dad 1/14 2006 and Mom 2 yrs later 11/3/ 2008, and then my Robert (my son) just 2 month and 4 days later and without warning (1/7/2009) You just grab hold of your faith and hang on tight and God will get you through it. It's a path that isn't easy.
Prayers for all that are suffering from the storms (another one is coming today. We're had lots of rain), For those who have lost loved ones, for our military serving everywhere, but especially those in harms way, for our country that we can elect a president that we need and not one we deserve , and wisdom to make the best decissions we can.
