3 months is a long time but not really...

A heart of gold stopped beating,
Two shining eyes at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove, 
He only takes the best.

God knows you had to leave me,
But you did not go alone.
For part of me went with you,
The day He took you home.


(I saw this poem on Maddie's blog, over to the right)

It's been three months, right now. 
I can scarcely believe it.
I've had some good cries today.

Now I'm going to go take a walk, and cry some more.

If we learn nothing else from this trial,
Come to Jesus and live.

Can't wait to see you again, sweet JackYoung the Brave.

My heart breaks for you too, Sweet Laurie. Looking at that picture makes me wonder if it all seems so unreal...and yet so real.
I love you dearly.

I think of you often and say a prayer for you...I know you know my brother Andy better than me, but I often refer to you as a friend when I talk about what an inspiration you are to others...keep your chin up...JOY is smiling down on you :)
