Kenneth and family, My heart goes out to you during this difficult time. I loved Ann and our friendship goes back to school days. She was a rare jewel and those who knew her loved her. It comforts me thinking she is in Heaven with Harry and others who have gone on to their permanent home with Jesus. I am sure Harry is showing her around and has told her a new joke. Kenneth my heart grieves for you as you have lost your best friend and soul mate and I know it feels as though a piece of your heart has been ripped out, and it has. Only the grace, comfort and peace of the Holy Spirit will get us through this pain. Just remember, Earths loss is Heavens gain and one day you will see her again and she is no longer in pain. May the Lord cover you all with His mercy and everlasting love.
