Deb & Tyler, I am heartbroken over your loss. I hope that you will be able to find peace, mercy, and understanding during this very difficult time in your life. Losses such as yours are difficult to deal with but it is something beyond your control and our understanding. Have faith that God has a plan for you both. May Joe rest in peace and we will see him again in God's kingdom. Matthew 5:9; "Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God."
