My heart grieves with you and for you, because a true angel has left this earth. Know God uses us everyday to do His will .
I know at times it seems difficult to take the road that he chooses,at times you don't understatnd why,but after all he does know the way to go and he does know best... And when it's all said and done, we too agree with his will, that it was best for us to go that way and for things to happen they way they did.
