Just know that He will never leave you and He can’t and will not come short of His Word. He is a Comforter in ALL things so give Him all your cares for truly He can handle what you can’t handle in this time.

I was sad to hear the news of your mother and understand the struggles you have had over the past few years. Sixteen grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren made me smile! What a blessing she was to so many, and I know you will miss her greatly. Take care of each other. Sincerely,
GA Division of Child Support Services
