  2. Very sorry for your loss. Prayers for all of the family in this time of loss.

  3. What a beautiful picture of Ms. Craigmiles ! She looks as though she fought cancer in a very beautiful way. Not allowing it to take everything away from her. There are no words I can say to comfort you at this time. But the promise made by our Heavenly Father in Revelation 21:3-5 says it all. (
