Connie, we are so sorry to hear the loss of your daughter. Let you know that the Tri-State Deaf Church has been praying for comfort to you and others. God surrounds you with His warm love. We may not understand why this happened, but God is in control. You are in our prayers and thoughts. May God gives you strength and guidance in the days ahead. Mark said that since you would be meeting your daughter in Heaven in the future, it is better to miss her for a while than to miss her forever.
