I'm so sorry for your loss, I just found out today. I would of been there, but since I wasn't I wanted you to know Tonia that you and your children are in my prayers. Here are some scriptures of encouragement Psalm 62:8, Isaiah 41:10 and 13, Romans 15:13 and John 5:28,29. May Jehovah God give you the strength and courage to continue on.

I am so saddened to hear this news. While recently meeting Scott and Tonia; he was very kind, likeminded and I looked forward to developing a friendship with him. I will pray for His peace and His presence for Tonia and the kids in their mourning. Allison and I are in mourning as well. Know that God understands what you are going through as He had to endure separation from His Son in death. Remember that while it is Friday; Sunday is coming?
