My heart was caught when I read you lost your beautiful daughter, Cadence and I wanted to send my warmest condolences to the family. To lose a child, a part of you, can bring such overwhelming grief but Jesus assures us at John 5:28,29 that you will have her in your life once again without the pain we see today. Until God’s promises come true may every good thought, every memory of the love you felt, flood and overtake you with calm and peace to help you through the dark moments. Please go to for more encouraging scriptures and videos to help heal your broken heart 💔
