God strengthens us by giving us the "power beyond what is normal" to make it through each passing day. Psalm 46:1 says: "God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you!

Phyllis and Brett,
Sorry for your loss. "Aunt" Betty was a very special person and was LOVED by our family. My prayers are with you and your family. Phyllis, I do believe in premonitions. Just yesterday, I was telling a friend about "Aunt" Betty and "Mr." Chet.
Then this morning, I learned she had passed away. The lives she touched, as she passed thru life, were certainly changed for the better.
