    I am shocked and stunned as I read the daily paper today. Memories flow from all the good times we have shared. Let God carry each of you and provide comfort as he will. One day at a time he will provide the strength to move forward. Mark & I are praying for you. This is a time for you to lean on others to help you carry on. The Lord will take care of you, everyday, all of the way. We are hear for you and if we had known would have been there today. Trust in the Lord.
