How does a broken heart sing for joy? We find out when we are grieving, yet thankful that our loved one is resting in the arms of Our Lord and celebrating the reunion with loved ones who are waiting for them there. Your family has been precious to Chrissy and me for many years, and your love, support, and encouragement helped us through difficult times. Julie's hugs were the best ever! You could feel the love coming through and a calming sense wash over you. I'm sending love and prayers for comfort for everyone who loved Julie, and especially for her "favorite" daughters!
