I wish I could get it I don't understand and all I know is how selfish he is if he was going to take himself that is bad enough but why did he feel the need to take her from us? I can't even figure out how to mourn it or let alone to get over it.
Thank you for your comment. My sons and I are having a very difficult time understanding why this has happened with there father, We were a very close family and we never would have thought that he would have done something like this. He had gone down to the river and had drowned, they were alot of issues surrounding his job and so many unanswered questions, he was a very strong individual mentally and physically and we just have to believe that it was his time and God wanted him home and we will know the answers when we return home but it is so difficult at times wondering what really happened. My heart breaks for my children and grandchildren but I do know he is watching over and sending us his love
