    Jen, I am so sorry for your loss, you are truly one on the most genuine, sweetest people I have ever met! My heart breaks for you! I can’t imagine your pain…I am praying for u and that God gives you the strength that we see in you everyday to get through this horrible tragedy. Remember, God never gives us anything more than we can handle in life and whether we get to know the reasons now or later, there is a purpose behind them, even when we can’t understand it. Stay strong and know you have sooooo many people that care and love you!!!
