It's during these times we need a double portion of our Lord's grace and comfort. No words can ever express the pain and hurt of losing a loved one. Please know that your family is in my thoughts and prayers. May God comfort you and give you strength in the days ahead. It will be the little things that you will remember, the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter. And although it may seem hard right now, it will be the memories of these little things that help to push away the pain and bring the smiles back again.
