In Our Hearts~

Thank you all for your very sweet comments and prayers.  This has truly been a very difficult time for our family.  You can't ever comprehend why someone is taken from your life like that.  This accident has left us with many unanswered questions and it only seems to intensify the pain.  We are working through it day by day.  My brother in law was not married and he was very close to us.  He was very involved in our kid's lives and we miss him more than any words could say.  He was a man's man but would leave his friends to come here and take our daughter shopping at the mall.  He was always here for us.  A fun loving, life to the fullest guy.  He worked hard, had fun and always made time for us.  This was my husband's only brother and he is feeling the loss immensely.  There has been a lot of responsibility heaped on my husband as we try to settle things.  I would appreciate all your prayers as we continue on this journey.  We will be bringing his two huskies to live with us.  There is some work that needs to be done in the yard before that can happen.  So many things that are left to be done.  

Your continued prayers and support are extremely appreciated.  We need more than ever to feel God's love and His arms of comfort around us.  I know that He works all things for good.  Though we have pain and many unanswered questions I know He is in control.  I cannot see the future but He holds it in His hand.

Hello Ruth,

Yes, it's so difficult when we lose someone that has lived a long life but losing someone at such an early time in their life is just to much to bear.

You're in my prayers..May the overwhelming pain subside through reading God's word and being around those that can give you a support system....you really need that right now.

Hugs to you,
Steph
