  1. I deleted Facebook a few weeks ago (spending too much time there ) so I want to thank you for sending your daily inspiration posts via email I’ll miss seeing all the wonderful comments and hearing the stories of others who walk our path But I wanted to thank you again for sharing your son, your life, your faith and your grief Until we are all reunited in heaven, we miss our children with all our hearts Thinking of you and your loss this Easter season Prayers for you and your family
