    Anita, May God comfort you all and give you peace during this difficult time. Please know His will was to call your father home for eternal peace in His Kingdom. With all my respect, Lin

    Anita, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your father. I also want to apologize for not being able to be there with you when you were there for me. A sweet little girl told me that whenever I wanted to talk to someone in heaven all I needed to do was send them a “mind message” and the Angels would make sure they got it. Who would have thought that sending a “mind message” to a loved one in heaven would help heal a broken heart. Please take comfort in knowing that all of us old HHS gals are thinking of you and your family during this most difficult time. Love Carol
