Malissa & Clara, I think of you all daily and pray for moments of relief as you journey through this season in your life. Fran once told me and I will share with you; "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven" Ecclesiastes 3:1

I am so sorry to hear about Aaron. It's hard to find the right words to say at a time like this. Friends and loved ones give encouragement and offer hope, but your pain is still in your heart and I know your heart hurts so much. Know my prayers and thoughts are with you and Clara and all of Aaron's family. The best we can hope for in our time of need is to accept help from others and then pass the love along. Remember, in every loss God offers hope.

Thinking of you all during this difficult time, my prayers are with your family. I wrestled with Aaron at Helias and he was also a coach for me at times in Tri-Cap. Such a great guy, he will be very missed.
