No words can I speak to give you, Will, and the entire family comfort. I don’t understand how one family can suffer such losses but I guess it is not for us to understand. I pray that you are given the strength you need for the days and months ahead. I know your faith may seem tested right now but it is strong. Please know that Amanda and I send our love to you and the family and will keep you close in our hearts❤️❤️🙏🏻🙏🏻
