My heart breaks for both families?

January 15, 2017


My heart goes out to the families and loved ones. May they experience comfort through this difficult time, knowing they WILL be reunited after our time on earth. Live on strong in the name of the ones you love who are no longer walking the earth. Be sure they are near to you anyway, especially for their children and spouse. It is true.
