When he wrote about facing adversity, memaw66 replied, “I pray for you every night along with my very large family. My heart aches for all of you. I have had those times when it was just so hard to be positive and being carefree and happy impossible in my 79 years. There are no words to truly relieve the worry and load, but I will continue to pray🙏🏻.”
