    “I don’t have any words to use right now to express how sorry I am for the loss of Stephen. You are experiencing a level of pain that most people can’t imagine and should never experience. I don’t know what to say other than I am so sorry. But please know that I am praying that God would bring you and your family comfort.” If there is anything I can do /make desserts please let me know.

    You are in my thoughts!
