    Jerome, Charlene, Michelle, Joshua and family. My deepest condolences for your loss. My heart is heavy with the pain you feel. I also lost a child and the pain is nearly unbearable. People say things happen for a reason but it made no sense to me and I’m sure to you either. My friend from so long ago just remember you will be reunited one day.
