  • Dear Anna,
    Although expected this was a shock to me. The only comfort I have is that Lou and Peter are roaming heaven on liberty. Can you imagine all the backslapping when they remet? “What took you so long”, “you’re a sight for sore eyes”, etc. For us it’s a new life without our soulmates, without our strong shoulders who took care of us. The comfort is they no longer are suffering and now enjoy the eternal embrace of our Blessed Lord. Know that I am praying for you and hoping you are well. Love you, Anita
