    Dear Virginia and family: I know this must have been a tough Christmas for you. As I have told so many of my friends recently when their family member has passed, it appears that the very best of people are taken at this time and I personally believe that Jesus wants them to celebrate his birthday and to use them in the world the went to which we cannot see but where they are needed to fulfill destiny. He was such good worker and I believe that God needs good workers at this time. Our prayers are with you at this time and healing vibrations and love going your way for all of you with love.
