  • As a parent of a 21 year old son, a 12 year old daughter, and a 9 year old daughter, my heart breaks for the families that have to endure the loss of their childrens’ lives at such a young age. This time should be spent enjoying their youth and the times that make you laugh. Cherish each day, all of you that have young or older children, never let a day go by without telling them that you Love them!! You never know when it will be the last time you will express those words!—-An embrace of Love in words and in touch!
