Lora and family I want to say I'm thinking of you at this challenging time. I have no words to help with your pain but I believe that our father in Heaven has all of you in his hands. He loves you and if you seek him he will be right there waiting to take your hand and walk with you. His love is like no other and I know you may not feel it right now but he understands. He will carry you through the hard days if you let him. My prayer is that you find his peace because he loves you so. In his love, Amy Muth.
