There’s no way I can even try to imagine what you are going through. All I can do is pray that you depend on God to
renew your spirits and provide you with what you need.

The art of loss is incredibly hard to master. With events like the loss of RJ, questioning of faith are bound to happen. But I trust this is all part of a bigger plan. I trust that RJ has been sent to a calmer, more peaceful place in which he has been given the responsibility of watching over those who he loves and those who love him. We will miss his incredibly deep dimples that let you know his smile was genuine. The pain will linger, but the memories will forever live in our heart.
Until next time, RJ. Love you.
