Hector....I wish I could say something really special that could take away some of the hurt and pain you and your family are feeling...but words cannot dull the heartache of losing a loved one, especially a woman who shared your life. My heart is saddened by your loss, and I hope and pray that your faith will carry you through these hard times. I have put you and your family on our prayer list at St. Mark's here in Plainview, and I pray that you will find some peace of mind in the difficult Christmas season ahead. If i can help in any way, please do not hesitate to ask. May God bless your entire family.
