I have been lifting you in prayer and peace. Great hurt signifies a great love. As time moves forward, may you find Dustin's laugh, smile, and other gentle reminders in your sweet daughter. Remember that our Mighty God placed His son to walk among us so that He would know our afflictions, our hurts, our questions, and our tears. He truly knows your pain. I pray for Him to show you the light in the dark days to follow. Much love, Becky Wilds-Hawk
