Remembering a Hero

This is an amazing account of a cousin’s love for another during a tragedy that was not foreseen. May we all wrap this family in nothing but love during their time of sorrow.

Memorial page for my loving Mother-In-Law

Miss her more than life. Wishing she was here to see her grandbabies growing up. I wish she was here to see my progress in school. Just hope she knows just how much she is loved.

Overwhelming feeling

It is week 2 of classes, and all I can say is oh my goodness. I am so lost and feeling like this was not the right choice. I am sending this overwhelming feeling to the Lord above to release me from this worry.
