We are so sorry for your loss. We know your pain and understand the shock of how quickly your loved one can be gone. I had to hold tight to my faith in God when Anne was killed and know God had a plan for her. I still miss her but I know she is in a better place. You will be in our thoughts and prayers throughout this difficult time. I told my mother, Aunt Joyce, and she is heartbroken for you all. She said come together as a family and hold each other a little tighter, say you love each other more, and keep your memories always in your heart.
Much love to you all!
