  2. To Jeanne, Jami, and Family, I am so very sorry for your loss. I know how difficult it is to lose a parent having lost my precious mother a number of years ago and my father to COVID just last year. May God comfort you and your family during this time of grief, give you His peace in those moments you need it the most, and give you strength to sustain you every day.

    I just wanted you to know that you are cared for, prayed for, and never, ever alone.

    Blessings, Trish
