It's hard to believe just a couple weeks ago, we spoke in RSBC's hallway at the Women's Conference and you were full of smiles. Father God, please help the entire family to cope with this tragedy. You know every emotion they are feeling. Help them to see and trust You even in this. Help them to recall the wonderful times they had and to know that You will sustain them. In the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, I pray, Deborah.”
