    For my Sister Petria, Shane, Denise & Family, I am so very sorry. I wish there were words to say that would make a difference but I know that when the heart is overwhelmed with feelings of sadness words do not suffice so tears flow. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18. The Lord hears the voice of your weeping.
