Hollie, My prayers are with your at this time. Here is a passage from a book that helped me when George died: "Once we have been gripped with the pain of grief, life changes and is never the same. We change and are never the same. What we could not live without, we do. A life that could not go on, does. When we are able to grieve well as women, we will look at the tapestry of our lives and see the precious threads of loss and grief, and we will recognize the fabric as our own. We will see how loss gave way to gain; death gave way to life, and pain gave way to peace." God Bless you, Hollie

So sorry Frank is gone but his race is won and I am sure that he will be waiting for you at Heavens Gate for your arrival and is now looking forward to the time that you can Stroll over Heaven with you. May the emptyness in your heart, at this time, be filled with His Love. God Bless You All. Love and Prayers Walter and Jessie
