I have lost a life-not my own, but it would have been easier to have lost my own life than to have lost the life that I loved so much.
Jessica, Nicole and Linda;
Youi are in my thoughts today. Loss is not a stranger to you. Know you are loved and cared for by so many of us. Sending you comfort and love during this very difficult time. Austin has made a special mark on our world.
