Dear Vianney, My heart aches for you and the children. There are no words that I can express that will relieve your pain during this most difficult time. Take comfort in knowing that those memories you’ve made over the years will be a healing balm to the sadness you’re experiencing now. The Lord is always there. Reach out to Him when the moments seem dark. He will wrap you in His arms and give you His peace that surpasses all understanding. We are praying for you all. Sending our love, Jay & MeChell Keppen
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
