    Tracey, boys, Barbara, Chris, Angel.....I'm so deeply sorry for your loss! I know all too well that mere words do nothing to soothe the burning ache that you're feeling now, so I won't offer any. I will promise to keep you all in my prayers daily, and ask our Creator to hold you especially close and carry you when needed. Love and a big hug! Karen
