Thank you so much for all your help! Never thought in my wildest dreams (don’t remember ever having a nightmare) that I would be having to do this. But sometimes life throws us a curve. And mine has come so late in my earthly life. I needed someone to help me feel comfortable when I really was trembling inside because I had never gone through anything like this before. Y’all have done that for me. Thanks again.
