    Was praying for Mr. Lashbrook for God’s will-for you that are left to grieve, I am so sorry for your loss now and in the future without him. So terribly glad, though, to know He’s with the Father-who knows best and all things. Will be praying for all you that are left and truing to fill the void in the home. Grief will come and stay, but gets easier as time goes by (been there). Although one never gets over losing our loved ones God sees to it that the comfort we need will come when we need it. God’s greatest blessing to each of you and prayers will continue to be sent your way. My heart hurts for you.
