Debbie and family,
My-heart goes out to each-of-you tonight as I heard of yet another-great-void in your lives.  I am so-sorry I cannot be there for you but you know these-circumstances we vulnerable-ones are in plus the terrible-heat and humidity.  I will certainly be there in prayers-and-thought.  May God bless you as you cling tightly to His unfailing-and-unchanging hands.  I guarantee from experience He will supply your every-needs.  Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others will tell you is right, wrong or indifferent.  Take care of yourself and let your-family be there for you.  I love all!
