Words cannot express how sorry we are about James. You have been in my thoughts all week. I know it may not seem like it right now, but you will survive this and eventually will look back and see what kind of new found strength it has given you. God has a plan for you just as he planned this. Being neighbors for over 10 years has created many memories and conversations. I hope that continues even if we have distance.
Anything you need, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Kristin Bell (and Tyler)
