LIFE...so fragile.
LOSS... so sudden.
HEART...so broken.
In the wake of such a loss, we're haunted by things we don't - and
may never - understand. Yet the solace we seek may not come from
answers. So we look for comfort, in the belief of love's everlasting
connection. May that love lift you, hold you close, and give you
peace.

Love,
Debey and Doug
