    You all are in our heart thoughts and prayers. Randy and Tina I feel you pain. When God sends for his angels it is difficult for us, and hurts us so bad, but we have to let them go. She ran her race and fought the good fight , and if she could speak to us now, she would say, " I wish you all were here, Heaven is such a beautiful place." And I know Heaven is much sweeter with her there. You two have been thru a lot losing your Dad & Mom. Again, I feel your pain and my heart is breaking for both of you. I pray that God will give you both the strength you will need in the days to come. It is with and only with the Love of God's presence that will get you thru. Just hold her dearly in your heart, We will be praying for you. God Bless you all. Love yall! Lemuel & Sharon Roebuck
