My heartfelt condolences, Bev and Joe. I'm not sure we will ever understand why some experience more pain and sorrow than others. It is in these moments that the words of Job come to mind, the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Praise be the name of the Lord. Your family is in my prayers, Bev. May the loving arms of God reach down and provide you all comfort. With love, Dumah

Joe and Bev, Like most people I really don't know what to say to you. You have been through such heartbreaking situations in the past few years. I am so very sorry about Tom and just know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers. He is in the arms of Jesus and all of his pain is now all taken away. You and his family on earth are in pain and will miss him dearly until you all join again in Heaven.
