My heart hurts for the things that could have been but never were, however, I rejoice in the hope and assurance that very soon all pain, sadness ,sickness and death will be gone forever. Revelation 21:3,4
Although I never met you it was nice to talk to you years ago...we had planned on meeting years ago but your health and other reasons kept us from that...You are no longer suffering the pain you endured you are looking above us flying high with the angels. R.I.P. Dad Love always your daughter Layla
