  6. Tim:
    I was so very shocked, and saddened, to hear this news from your brother Ray. I will lift you, Amanda, Judy, and the rest of your family up in prayers! I had not seen Brett since the old GSU days when he was a youngster, but he has grown into a handsome young man, and sounds like he had a wonderful zest for life! God bless you all.

    I haven’t met you, but I want you to know that I pray that God will give you the strength, perseverance, and support that you most need during this difficult time! (I lost my beloved husband just last April, so I know some of the emotions/grief you are going through.) God bless!
