Sue, I am so terribly sorry to hear about Frank. Having been there, I know your whole life changed in an instant and right now there is nothing anyone can say to help. I remember a card I got that said, When God shuts a door he opens a widow. I know a window is pretty small compared to a door but it will let in a little sunshine, if you just keep looking for it. Hold tight you your friends and those beautiful grandchildren. I will not be able to attend Tuesday, but I will have you in my thoughts and prayers.
