Kathy, So sorry to hear of your loss of Harvey. The loss of a spouse leaves an empty space in your heart. I will be lifting you up in prayer in the coming days and pray that God will wrap you in his arms and give your comfort and peace as no other can do. I remember when and how we met and have never forgotten you. Would love to talk to you, (ask Beams to give my number to you). Take care sweet lady!
