Praying the comfort and peace that goes beyond anything we can hope for from Our Heavenly Father. Always know that our Heavenly Father is always available to comfort you and hold you. Dee was always so kind to me and my family. Always with a smile and encouraging words. And she Loved the Lord. Psalms 29:11 says "The Lord will give strength unto his people;the Lord will Bless His people with peace."
