Oh Donna I am so very sorry for your loss of Don. He was such a nice guy. I feel awful that I cannot attend the service at the church on Saturday because I had already taken Saturday off to work for my brother this weekend at a gun show as I so often on my available weekends monthly do. I’m committed and he has such a difficult time finding people willing to work cheap that he couldn’t find anyone to cover for me, much to my chagrin. I will try to get in touch with you in a week or so to pray for you and of course I have already prayed for you and will keep you in my prayers as I know that only God Almighty can get you through this difficult time. I’m so happy that you are a woman of faith as so many are not and therefore unable to available on God’s peace which passes all understanding as you can. Know that I, and of course no doubt so very many others care. Love, Cindy Lalic
