Hey Ruthann, I saw that you responded to an email from our common good friends Glen & Jayne Steenblik. That made me smile. They are on their 2nd mission together like Laura and I are. The difference is we are living at home this time and they are in France. We live in Provo Canyon and keep getting more snow! Over 3 feet on the ground.

Sandi - At some level we all understand that God did not intend this life to last forever. Even so, the reality of going through the process of losing someone so important in every moment, every aspect of your life must be more difficult than you anticipated. Our concern for you and Craig is real. We trust you find comfort in the Lord and his promise of an eternal marriage. You have given words of loving encouragement to others. May this be a blessing in return to you.
