I was so sorry to read about your loss and I wanted to send my warmest condolences to the family. To lose a loved one, a part of your life, can bring such overwhelming grief but the God of all comfort tells us at 2 Kings 20:5 he hears our prayers, he sees our tears, and he feels our pain. At we can read John 5:28, 29 that you will have Shandrell in your life once again. May all the sweet memories you have give you calm and peace to help you through the dark moments until God’s promises come true. Again so very sorry for your heartache.
