Laurie R., I just read your feedback letter in the December issue. You have my sympathies over the recent death of your father. I can relate because I lost my mother to cancer in November. She meant more to me than the world. When my mom died, I tried to believe in God because my mom was always saying He would take care of her and protect her. I feel that her death hasn’t hit me yet, but when it does, I hope she is watching out for me.
