I am very saddened of the news of Uncle Edgar's passing.
He was one of the best and will be dearly missed. As we know, his spirit is still alive and he his now with our Lord Jesus. We will all meet up with him one day.
I pray for my Aunt Donna for comfort and strength, they had a love for one another that was phenomenal.
I pray that Donna and the Girls will be given signs daily that he is well and happy and that will give them peace.
Love and God Bless Shirl
