    I’m so sorry for the loss of David Lincoln, nothing hurts worse than loosing a child. I pray for your family to have the comfort they need during this time. It hurts so bad when you have no answers as to what happen, it’s been 13 yrs. that my family suffered a loss just like yours and she was 41. God will bring you all through this horrible because you all are a tight knit family and love each other very much.
    I love you all very much and will do anything to help! Aunt Rita<<<<<<
