Dear Terry,
I am truly sorry for your loss. I know that this must have affected you deeply.
I have no words of my own to express how I feel.
Meeting with this loss and sorrow is starring through a glass darkly.
But we do know for certain that God's word is our only reliable cliff.
Math. 10 : 29"Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.

30But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

31Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. "
Even confronted with the worst, these are promises to walk further on.
My prayers for the family too.
From Felisol
