Michael- Gloria just sent me the link to this site. It's never easy to lose a parent- no matter how old or how young. Be assured that the Lord will fill the hole left by her passing. Both my Dad and Mom are gone now, and there is still an ache there sometimes especially when my kids do something special that I know they would want to see or hear about.

Michael, Please tell your wife that we're praying for her and the family for comfort. I know this is a difficult time, but she can know that many are thinking of you all and supporting you all in prayer.
Gloria and George Cox
