May God bless each and every one of you in this tragic happening in your lives. I remember Kevin and my Tom being truck-drivers together. It doesn't seem possible he had become a grandparent. Grieve-as-you must; not-as-others are telling you is right, wrong or indifferent. Lesi, I can share widowhood at basically such a young age as I was 62 years old when my Tom went to Heaven after a sudden but terrible scenario and that was 21 years ago this coming June. Cling tightly to our Lord's unchanging and unfailing hand, He will never leave or forsake you.

Lesi, my deepest condolences to you and your family. My dear friend, I know that today you feel lost and broken because your loss was very sudden. I know it will take you a while to assimilate this great tragedy and move on. But I trust that with God's grace and holding His hand you will succeed. Facing the death of someone so dear to you is never easy. That is why I pray to Almighty God to embrace you, your daughter, and grandbabies in His holy arms and help you find peace as you go through this painful time. I'm here for whatever you need. My number has not changed. I love you very much and I am sending you hugs.
