  9. Tasha and Patti,

    I found out through a friend, and I am so, so sorry! I cannot even imagine what you and Tasha are going through. I was sick inside for both of you. Please know that you are in my thoughts and I will be praying for both of you. I’m sorry I couldn’t make the service. It would have been good to see all of you. Only God can see you guys through this. The rest of us just don’t have the words that can help. We try, but I know it probably doesn’t help. Just know you guys are loved and cared about. Miss seeing all of you. Again, I am so sorry. I will pray for strength for all of you. Love you.
