My condolences to Skip, Dee Dee, and the rest of Louise's family. I know this must be a very difficult time for you. Psalms 62:7,8 tells us, "My strong rock, my refuge is God. Trust in him at all times, O people. Pour out your hearts before him. God is a refuge for us." Whenever you need to talk to someone, remember Jehovah God is there for you anytime and anywhere.
