    To My Dearest Friend Marissa and her family, my condolences to you all and know that my family and I are praying for you. Praying for God’s peace and strength during this moment in time. For while we never understand God’s plan at that exact moment, the old hymn says we will understand it better by and by. By and By when the morning comes, All the saints of God are gathering home. We will tell the story how we’ve overcome and we’ll understand it better by and by. Know that God is with you and your Dad is now with his heavenly Father. I wish I could be there with you…know that my heart is and if you need anything, do not hesitate to let me know.
