I am so sorry for the loss of Frederick J. and Randy. I know this is a difficult and painful time for you. But God knows the depth of your pain. He knows the hurt and every emotion you are feeling. He cares for you as 1 Peter 5:7b says. May God give you strength and comfort to endure this difficult time. I pray that he give you strength from the love and care that surrounds you and comfort in the memories that you shared. 2 Thessalonians 2:15, 16
