My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Mrs. Hurley's family and friends as you grieve her physical presence. Since the day we met in Mrs. Kerr's third-grade homeroom, Sam was a friend I truly loved and adored. I continue to think of him and your family often.

Stephanie, if you're reading this, you have a special place in my heart too.

Praying that God’s promises will comfort and sustain you, and that His steadfast love will be your strength and hope in the days ahead.
