Tony & Amanda ~ I am so very sorry. My heart breaks…just breaks for you. There is nothing more unnatural and painful than the loss of a child.
I also, lost my daughter unexpectedly (diagnosis of SIDS) – if you EVER want to meet and/or talk to someone that knows/feels your pain, please don’t hesitate to call (320.492.0061) or e-mail me. (Amanda, I played volleyball with your sister Amy in high school…so I’m not a total random stranger.)
Please be patient and gentle with yourselves…
Dear Nguyen Family: Please accept my deepest condolences for your great loss. May you find comfort in John 5:28:29 & Rev 21:3,4,5 to help you cope in the days ahead.
