Roxy, I love you and I’m so sorry about the loss of your Dad. I’m praying for you daily, and sending you love. Prayers to all your family as well:
God of love and mercy,
embrace all those
whose hearts today
overflow with grief,
unanswered questions
and such a sense of loss.
Grant them space
to express their tears.
Hold them close
through the coming days.
