Kayce and Coleman,
I love you both (and your sweet families). I was so sad to hear about Brody. Please find comfort in knowing that you haven't "lost" him because you know EXACTLY where he is!! I'm sure my baby sister had the red carpet rolled out to welcome Brody HOME!! She's a GREAT babysitter, btw.. she'll take great care of him until we all get where we're going!!
I'll pray for GOD to give you a peace that passes all understanding as you continue to put one foot in front of the other.
LOVE YOU ALL!!!!
Lisa Milligan

There are some folks in Dallas, TX praying for your sweet family with broken hearts over your story. We've never met, but the same God that holds you precious boy in His arms is the God we love. We are pleading on your behalf for peace that surpasses all understanding and for the God that has moved mountains to show up big time in your hurting world in Charleston.

Joe, the Bates and Porter families,
There are very few words to express the grief and pain that you are enduring. I ask God to give you strength to endure, as well as rest from your pain.
My prayers are with you daily.
Blessings,
Carol Dawn Young
