    This is so sad to hear, and my prayers go out to all the families involved. I pray that you will find God’s peace and love during this time in your lives. I have lost loved ones, and I can honestly say there are no words that will help. I pray you have fellowship with people who will hug you and hold you close to their hearts every day.
