Those we love leave us gifts in the form of memories that no one can take away. Wisdom that we can still recall. These are the things that we will cherish forever. May the family continue to look to Almighty God for comfort during this most stressful time since "He is close to the brokenhearted. He saves those who are crushed in spirit." Psalm 34:18. My condolence to you.
