My deepest sympathy to the family.
Leanna GivsOpelousas, LA
I am very sorry to hear of the lost of your dear loved one. Psalms 66:19 says: " Truly God has heard; He has
paid attention to the voice of my prayer." God hears our prayers and feels our pain. God can give you the
strength needed to endure."
So sorry for the family's loss.We were neighbors in Opelousas in the 60s. God bless and comfort you. Love and prayers
