You do not know me but I share your pain and have not stopped praying for you and the family since I heard the sad news. I am Keagan’s teacher at All Nations Church each Sunday. I know there are no words to make this better but I know that God is in the midst and He will bring you peace and comfort. I will continue to be praying.
