Dr. Ragan & I are praying for ALL your family. We know that God's Grace is sufficient to sustain thee. In times like these HE is our anchor. HE the Sweet Holy Spirit calming us as we move closer to Heaven ourselves. He knows our pain during these times. He wept with compassion when he saw Lazareth's sister weeping. It is documented in Holy Scriptures more than once that he wept. His compassion is like no one else's. "He groaned in the spirit and was troubled over a death." (John 11:35; Luke 19:41; Hebrews 5:7-9). God is truly "touched with the feeling of our infirmities." (Hebrews 4:15). He will sustain you and keep you. Dr. Ed & Kathy.
