    So so very sorry. It is a very sad time to lost someone we have loved all our lives. Time does not favor anyone, if it did, we would never let go, but God know best, so therefore we know all our days are numbered, but we are never ready.
    I’m speaking from experience. God Bless Yall and Take Care of You and rest assured he will do that. If I can help I would welcome the pleasure to do so. Take Care. Love yall.
