    Dear Jim & Mary,
    Tina sent me the email about your son Jay. The loss of a child is devistating to say the very least.
    My prayer is that you can lean on your faith and family in this most difficult time. Life sends us curves that can throw us off track, but God can step in and straighten out the road.
    Love, Hugs & Blessings,

    I am very sorry to hear about this Jim. I can’t imagine what you and Mary are feeling of course. But do know that I have thought about all often in the passed few days and said a particular prayer for your whole family whilst I was in St. Giles in Edinburgh. If seemed especially important to remember you in the homeland that was so important to Jay and is important to you all.
