    Thinking of you during your time of loss. God wraps us in a tender embrace while we mourn. In time, we emerge comforted by God’s mercy and restored by His love. My Brother-in Law is in a better place and I’m sure he is already Fishing. May God’s infinite Love be very real to you, especially now. Love to you and the Family.
