  1. Lottie Lindsay, you have such a loving heart for everyone you meet. I know you must be hurting, not only for yourself but for your husband and his family. I pray you all can find the strength you need to get through these next few very difficult days by drawing the strength you all need from each other. I could not have survived the loss of my parents without the support of my sisters and family. I pray for peace for all of you.
