    Bobby, Joanne and Kim My heart hurts for you and your family. I feel like I am letting you down by not being there with you. I know a lot of people will say they know how you feel but until they loose a child they will never understand that feeling. Parents are not suppose to bury there children. Bobby you were there for me when I lost Chris and I should be there with you now to help you. With what me and Sandy are going through I didn't know whether I would help or disrupt the family by my appearance there. I know right now you heart is hurting so bad you do not know if you can survive this situation, but you can! Let God help you though it He can fix all problems and hurts if you will let Him. It will never be the same again as it was in the past and you or I can not change that, but you will come to a New Normal (it will take time)and Patience. I love all three of you and I always will. David
