  1. To Parissa and family,

    My sweet girl, I know this has been a very hard time for you. We don’t always know the answers. I know you love your mom very much and in return, I know she loved you, Michael, and your whole family. I know you are suffering from this loss, but I pray to the Loving Father His special grace and comfort to all who are grieving with you at this time.

    You are the great God of comfort and I pray that You would reach out Your arm of love and draw all who are having to face a life on their own, a life without their loved one.
    In Jesus’ name, 
    My love to you,
    Ms Browning
