I know first hand the depths of sorrow in loosing a treasured loved one. But I also know First hand, that our loved ones are still with us.... only in a different way. Rest assured, they are at peace, and are ALWAYS nearby..... Everything you say to them, and think about them, they are aware. They KNOW how much you love them. And THAT is what keeps us strong and enduring until we see them again....
