Becky, As you know that my mother in-law lost 3 of her children before she passed. It was her faith, family and friends support she was able to go on with her life. You know I love you and time ahead will not be easy but you are a strong woman and can handle what blows life hands you. I will aways be here for you. Penny (sis)
