Prayers for Alice

Sharing is caring!

So much on my mind right now.  Where do I begin?

The best part of blogging is the friendships I have made and the wonderful comments from my lovely readers.  It is seriously so amazing when you go through a hard thing and everyone rallies around with prayers and sympathy.   And now I need your prayers more than ever.

My wonderful sweet sister-in-law had a beautiful baby girl a few days ago.  We were all so happy for her and my brother.  They have two little boys and now a little girl–just like I do.  But then my sister-in-law got sick.  Very, very sick.  And now she is in the hospital in critical condition.  She was in so much pain that the morphine didn’t seem to even help.  Her blood pressure was all over the place:  too high, too low.  I won’t go into the details, but she is unconscious in the Intensive Care Unit with many serious health problems and they just don’t know what it really is.

I can only imagine what my brother must be going through right now as he watches his beautiful wife struggle between life and death.  Terrifying thoughts of single parenthood, her children growing up without her, her daughter never even knowing her have crossed my own mind.  I wish I could be there to help in any way but I feel helpless as he must, to just sit and wait.

But there is one bright glimmer of hope:  the hope that comes from believing in God.  Belief in a God who loves us and hears our prayers and our pleas can give us the strength to get through our darkest hours.  Knowing that He will be there for us one way or another is powerful beyond belief.  I can’t imagine how you could get through it without a belief in a Savior who loves us and suffered for our sins and knows all our pains.  I really can’t.  I went to church today and just prayed unceasingly for His comfort and healing.

I made this graphic today with one of my favorite scriptures from Doctrine and Covenants 121:7.  “My son, peace be unto you, thine adversity is but a small moment.”  It always helps me feel peace when I’m going through a hard time.

God may not choose to heal her and that is a very sad reality to face–one that I just can’t deal with right now.  But I believe that there is an afterlife where we can all be together again someday.  And looking at it with an eternal view, our life on earth seems like a blip on the timeline.  Of course it is never easy to lose a loved one, especially before their time.  But without the hope that we can see them again, we have nothing.

We must have Hope.  We must have Faith.  And we must have the pure love of Jesus Christ–Charity.

Please pray for Alice.  Thank you.


  1. I am so sorry to hear this. Something similar happened to me after my daughter was born a year ago, though it only lasted a day or so. I was lucky to recover quickly, but they never did figure out what happened.

    I pray that she is as lucky as I was and recovers her full health as mysteriously as she lost it. Thank heaven for eternal families, regardless of how this turns out.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about your sister-in-law. That’s so sad and scary. A family in my ward had a similar thing happen to them about a month or so ago. They went to Utah to be there for their daughter, while she gave birth. Everything seemed fine after delivering the baby and then suddenly she wasn’t fine. I don’t know all the details, but in essence, she almost died. I know she lost a lot of blood, along with some other problems. Luckily, through a lot of faith and prayers, she ended up being okay. I’ll pray for your sister-in-law and truly hope that all ends up well. Hugs. 🙂

  3. so sorry to hear this my prayers are with you and her and her family

  4. Heidi–I’m so sorry, that’s so scary! I know I can’t say anything to make it better, but I’ll certainly keep your family in my prayers–I hope you can update with good news soon.

  5. I can’t imagine how hard this is for your family. How unfair, too, that this is some sort of nightmarish medical mystery. I will pray for Alice.

  6. I’m so sorry! I’ll keep her in my prayers. I’m a big believer in the power of prayer.

  7. The heavens are thundering with prayer for Alice right now. That mama needs to be with her family, her family needs her. Please keep us posted, and we will continue to pray.

  8. Praying for your family and especailly your sister-in-law. God Bless You!

  9. Sorry to hear your sister-in-law is so sick.My prayers are with you and your family.

  10. I am touched by your testimony and will most certainly pray for Alice.

  11. Heidi, I’ve added her to all the prayer chains I know of. We have many praying for her right now. God be with you and all your family during this time.

  12. I’m so sorry to hear about your sister-in-law! I’ve pinned the image to Pinterest with the plea for prayers and posted the link to this blog entry on my Facebook page. There is great power in prayer – and I believe there are also great blessings when we can serve strangers by praying for them… and as always, may the Lord’s will be realized through this trial.

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      Thank you all so much. These prayers and all your support lift me up so much.

  13. Shirley Lupton says:

    Consider it done. My husband and I pray for all my blogging friends each night and will include your SIL in our prayers and offer it up to God.

  14. Paula Chaffin says:

    I am stopping to pray right now. It is so hard to pray for God’s will in a case like this. Selfishly we all want complete healing.
    Know that they are in our prayers.

  15. I’m so sorry to hear this Heidi. It’s so heartbreaking for your brother and family. My prayers are with your sister-in-law and her family. Thank you for this wonderful scripture. I hope it can bring some peace.

  16. So sorry to hear this. Will lift her and all the family in my prayers.

  17. Dear Heidi…….I am SO sorry to hear that your dear SIL is so ill. Know that she is being prayed for, as well as the rest of your family.


  18. Alice has been in my prayers the last couple of days. God is big and mighty…prayers that he heals Alice. And that he gives you all peace, grace, and wisdom!

  19. Dearest Heidi, thing like this are so very heartbreaking for a family. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family during this rough go. I hope that it helps you find the peace you are seeking.


  20. I just made the connection that your SIL Alice is the same Alice whose husband just graduated from BYU’s MBA program–the same program Curt is in. We have had emails circulating amongst the MBA students & spouses all day today, asking to offer up prayers in their family’s behalf. You are all in our prayers! I can’t even imagine what they/you must be going through. I am definitely hugging my boys a little tighter tonight & offering prayers of gratitude for our health. Praying for peace & comfort for all of you.

  21. May healing thoughts somewhat sooth this unthinkably difficult time your family is going through. Sending your families strength and peace through heartfelt thoughts. Give that precious baby girl an additional squeeze from Alice every time you see her.

  22. Praying for your family, Heidi! I can’t imagine how difficult this must be. Praying she will heal and recover, and hoping that God will comfort your brother and his sweet children.

  23. Although I do not know you or your family it saddens my heart to hear of your loss. I will keep you and your family in my prayers and good thoughts. May you find peace and joy in the blessings that God has given to you the children.

  24. Heidi,
    My heart goes out to you and your family. I know at difficult times in the lives of my and my family members, I have thought, “Heavenly Father, I am so glad that You know what You are doing, because I don’t have a clue what it is that You are doing.” Having a knowledge that He loves us and is aware of us, even when it is hard to feel Him there because of our sorrow and pain, keeps us hanging on to Him through the horrendous experience and gives it meaning, while we learn to give our will to Him and allow Him into our hearts more completely. The Savior knows and understands all your brother is going through. I pray that you and your family are strengthened and buoyed up during this very difficult process. I know it will be hard, but I also know you are all loved beyond anything you can comprehend or feel at this moment. I know the Spirit will deliver that love of the Lord to you and your family many, many times in the years to come. And it is okay to expect it, because He willingly offers it to you. Hugs to you.
    My Mother’s maiden name is Hansen, from Fountain Green, Utah. So, you feel like family to me…

  25. She looks so LDS in photos and her bright spirit shines. May our Heavenly Father comfort and bless your family. She will watch over her family from the spirit world. I will be praying for you.

  26. Thinking of you and your family right now. I can only imagine how difficult this is, but I’m praying for all of you!

  27. I’m so sorry to hear about your sister-in-law. May God bless your family with peace and comfort as you grieve the loss of your loved one and look toward the future ahead without her.

  28. Hey Heidi
    Sending you massive hugs and prayers.

  29. Laurie Myers says:

    Your story breaks my heart. So many thoughts and prayers to you. xoxo

  30. I am so sorry for your loss. I wish there was something I could say to ease the pain but I know there is not. What I can do is think about your family and pray. Prayer does magical things. My life is a testament to that so I will be sure to pass that along.

  31. Sending you and your family so much love in this heartbreaking time.

  32. I’m sorry to hear about your loss. I’m sure that Heidi’s light will continue to shine bright and she will live in her family’s memory for all of their lives. God bless.

  33. My prayers are with you as you embark on this new journey I’m certain you wouldn’t have chosen. May you feel God’s love and the love of people around you. May you find comfort in both expected and unexpected places. Wishing you so much joy on the birth of your niece! What a delight she must be to you all!

  34. Courtney Anne says:

    May comfort find you quickly and love surround you always. You will always see Alice in the eyes of her children and the heart of your brother.

  35. I’m so sorry. Stay strong, your family is beautiful. You will all be in my thoughts.

  36. I am so sorry to hear about your heartbreaking loss while at the same time celebrating new life in your family. I hope your niece brings you comfort at this difficult time. I cannot imagine what you must be going through right now but you are in my thoughts and prayers. Much love to you all during this time.

  37. May you and your family find comfort, love and support through this difficult time. So sorry for your loss.

  38. Your family has been on my heart and mind for a few days. I pray that the peace that passes understanding dwells in your hearts and minds as you deal with this new reality of what life will look like for all of you. May you be blessed richly by the life of this baby girl and may she help to heal your hearts from this loss.

  39. Heidi, I know Alice’s legacy will live on through her family. The love and faith your family shares is inspiring. Please know we’re all thinking about you. Love, Emma

  40. Stay strong. I can’t imagine what you’re going through right now but stay strong for you and the whole family

  41. Brad Ellison says:


    So sorry to read about your family’s loss. Know during this time that you are loved by those around you and by people all across the world. Most importantly, continue to cling to the hope that we serve a loving God who uses all things for His glory. You and your family are being covered in prayer.

  42. So much your love your way,
    I pray for peace and for the lives of the three little children, that they may grow up to be the people of faith and courage, who Alice would be proud of.
    Praying for your family, xxx

  43. What a beautiful family she created…. So much love and light to you and yours…

  44. Please know that Alice is now healed. She’s just not here. Blessings for you and Alice’s husband during these difficult days.

  45. Heidi,

    I am so sorry for your loss. I moved by your faith and love for your family. I pray that God brings you lots of smiles and hugs in this challenging time. Know that you are and your family is loved, even from Costa Rica right now.

    🙂 Olga

  46. I am so sorry about your family’s loss. What a terrible tragedy. I will pray for comfort and healing for the entire family.

  47. It is AMAZING how God can work, isn’t it? Even through hard times, he is always there. Even if we can’t see or feel him. I remember one time a friend of mine talked to me about faith of a mustard seed. That faith isn’t big, it’s the faith to get through the next step. The next breath even. God can work through that! One breath at a time. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family!

  48. I only hope that knowing Alice’s story has touched my heart will provide you with some comfort. I hope that you can feel the embrace of all those that are sending prayers, well wishes and thoughts of healing to your family today. May you find some peace and may Alice’s spirit live on.


  49. Sending you lots of love and light. May that little girl every day remind you of her mama.

  50. We are so sorry for your loss. Sending lots of love your way.

  51. I’m glad you have your faith, Heidi. It is times like these that we need to hold onto the belief that it is just a moment in time and we will all be reunited one day.
    My prayers are with your family right now. Take strength in one another and love that new baby.

  52. Though we don’t understand HIS plans we know that GOD causes everything to work together for the good of those who love HIM and are called according to his purpose for them. (Rom 8:28) Continue to hold on the HIS unchanging hand because with HIM is where healing and perfect love abide. My prayers are with you and your family.

  53. Though it may not seem like much of a comfort, your sister’s passing was quite rapid. Sometimes a great deal of suffering and grief comes with someone’s passing, especially from something we can’t understand. I pray YHVH will speed comfort to your family, and your brother-in-law and his children would be well protected and cared for. And may you similarly be blessed for bravely writing this blog in memory of your sister.

  54. Praying for your family. May peace find you in this trying time so that you can give your brother strength and encouragement to carry on.

  55. Patty Smith (love~bomber) says:

    Sending you and your family much love and peace today and for the days ahead.

  56. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Especially your Brother and his Children at this time.

  57. I cannot imagine what you and all of her family are going through. It is heart-breaking and I am so very sorry for your loss. I wish you all love, peace, and comfort and am glad that your strong faith is helping you all through it.

  58. My sympathies to you and your brother, the kids and your entire family. I know your faith will help you all get through this but I also know that it is still terribly difficult and for that I wish everyone peace. Alice sounds like a great person, one I wish I knew. Take that memory, her gifts and her spirit with you as comfort, teach her children about their wonderful mother, she will live on through them. Thoughts and prayers to everyone, take care.

  59. Sending infinite love & warmth to your courageous soul, praying that you find peace and stillness along this journey. You are loved.

  60. Terry from Arkansas says:

    Words fail me. I cannot begin to imagine what you and your family are going through right now. Bless the hearts of those little children. My heart and prayers reach out to you in attempt to wrap you in arms of comfort and love. Stand strong knowing that you will survive this and be stronger for having done so. I say this often: one day at a time, one hour at a time, one minute at a time, one second at a time . . . breathe in and breathe out. Sending love your way.

  61. Erika Icon says:

    My heart goes out to you and Alice’s children and family–I’m sorry for your loss. I know this is extremely rough. Please keep the faith–things will get better. I will chant for you–that’s how we Nichiren Buddhists pray.

    Lots of love and hugs,

  62. What a tragic turn of events on what is supposed to be a joyous occasion. I’m praying for the entire family. I know it seems so hard on the family right now but the Lord has plans even though we don’t always understand them at the time. Please remember to keep your faith and this is now a time for the family to grow even closer and to help out. I’ll be praying for everyone.

  63. Ryan the Koala says:

    A true test of a person’s will is what he does when everything falls apart.

    Stay strong! There are a lot people behind you. God bless!

  64. Our hearts all go out to you and your family in this time of loss. May your sister’s life be an inspiration and a joy to all of you in spite of the pain you’re going through. Lean on each other and on your faith, and know that you are being thought of by so many people.

  65. Thinking of you and your family during this very difficult time. Sending love and big hugs your way!

  66. I so sorry to hear about the hardship your family is going through right now. I cannot even begin to imagine the pain your brother must be in right now. I am sending all of my positive thoughts and wishes to your family and for your sister in law.

  67. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, your brother, and your family during this difficult time. Give lots of love to each other and the new baby!

  68. Likely, by the time you get to this comment, you’ll figure out that you’ve been Love Bombed. I’ve been ‘bombing’ people for over a year, and it’s amazing how despite the predictability of heartache that comes each week, some of the stories stand out more than others. Yours grabbed me, misted my eyes, and forced me into over two hours of researching the disease, how I could help on your blog, your SIL’s story, and searching for the right words for you.

    All that time spent, and I’m still mostly speechless. We tend to forget that in those statistics “1 in 982348987987 showed symptoms!” with each disease, that there was that 1, that impacted thousands of lives. I hope you realize that between your gorgeous words, and your nomination to be ‘bombed’ today, your SIL’s legacy IS living on, her family – you included – is being supported and loved on and prayed for. You’ve got an army of people impacted by your incredible gift of writing through the pain. I’m sending every bit of strength I can today, and leaving you with a quote I found and paraphrased today:

    “Let yourself have days to be perfectly imperfect. Let yourself feel what you need to feel to let yourself process life the way it should be processed. Let yourself BE. Good days will pass, overwhelm will dissolve, and the sun will come up again tomorrow with a fantastic beginning to be had.”

    I borrowed it from this blog: http://www.bravegirlsclub.com/dailytruths/may1612.htm

    I hope you, your brother, your nephews and niece, find peace soon.

  69. God works in mysterious ways, and sometimes these ways are so mysterious that we just have absolutely no idea why on earth God would do something like that. As painful as this is, know that God hasn’t abandoned you or your family, and will be always watching you from heaven. I pray that he will hold Alice’s little girl in his hands, so that she may grow into a strong and confident human being, who Alice would be proud of. I pray that God gives you strength in this sad time, and that you will all be able to grow into the people who Alice would have wanted you to be. I wish there was something else I could say to make this easier, my prayers are with you and your family, and Alice’s family. “May the Lord bless you and keep you, May the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious, unto you.” God bless. xoxoxo

  70. I am so terribly sorry to hear of your family’s loss and I can’t imagine what you are going through =[. Things like these are just so hard to wrap your head around because they’re so senseless and arbitrary and utterly unfair. I hope you and your family finds peace and can focus on the ever present beauty in life, such as the wonderful baby girl your sister in law brought into this world. All the best, lots of love.


  71. Heidi, please take a large armful of love and support that I am hoping to deliver via this comment on your blog and pass along buckets full to your brother and his children in this unbelievably challenging time. The pain of losing someone who shares a central place in your heart and the hearts of her family may seem insurmountable and the whole situation may feel so unfair. My own heart broke reading your story and I want you to know your family is not going unsupported by a larger community. I hope that by reaching out you remember you’re never alone and I know that by banding together you can create an unshakable bond with your family that is cemented by the love you have for your late sister in law. Best of luck and remember how much love you have supporting you and your family right now! You’ll be in my thoughts!

  72. I hope you can find comfort knowing that you have much love and support during such a difficult time for you and your family. My thoughts and prayers go out to you.

  73. I can’t properly express how sorry I am for the loss of your sister-in-law. Loss has always seemed like such a strange word to use because you haven’t actually lost the person, we know we’ll see them again and yet death has such a harsh ring to it I hate to use that word. I read several of your posts about her and, although I didn’t know her, you seemed to capture her spirit and character in your thoughts on this amazing womam. What a shame that her children won’t get to know her the way you did and that her daughter won’t have any memories of her at all. I pray that God will give you the strength and peace to get through this terrible time. Love and prayers from Green Bay, WI.

  74. Sending the peace that comes only from our God.

  75. Sending you love and strength.

  76. I’m so sorry for your loss. I know you must be hearing those words numerous times right now and think they don’t mean anything, but please know I genuinely feel for you and your situation is on my heart. I’m sure that you must be frustrated, not being able to actively Do something to help or change the situation but having to just wait and be there. I’m frustrated right now, wishing I could do more than just say sorry. I’ll definitely be praying for you, and for your brother’s strength and wisdom as he struggles with grief while being the leader of his family. I hope you will all grow closer to God as you wrestle it out with him and that you all reach a point of peace. Much love to your family.

  77. Stay strong, you are a beautiful family. 🙂
    Lots of love!

  78. I am so sorry for your family’s loss, even as you rejoice in your niece’s life. The Lord has promised to be a “father to the fatherless” and I’m sure that that includes being a mother to the motherless as well. I am praying for your brother and his children as well as your whole extended family.

  79. Heidi–I’m so sorry, that’s so scary! I know I can’t say anything to make it better, but I’ll certainly keep your family in my prayers–I hope you can update with good news soon.

  80. This is a terrible loss for your brother, his children, and the rest of your family, but Alice will live on in her children, especially her baby girl. When you look at the kids, you’ll all be reminded of everything good about Alice, and your memories, pictures and love will make sure that her sons don’t forget her and her daughter gets to know her as much as she can before they finally get to meet. I’m sure all of them can feel the love that the rest of the family is giving to them, along with what the rest of the world is sending your way, and I’m sure your brother will be a great father to his kids with the help of his friends and family and the memory of Alice.

  81. Wishing you and your family comfort and peace during this difficult time. May warm memories be a light through these dark days.

  82. Heidi, I wish you and your family all of the comfort, faith and hope that is needed during this time of watching Alice sacrifice her life for that of her newborn daughter. I hope you all can find strength to see Alice’s renewed life through the eyes of your niece…a daughter who deserves to also be surrounded by loving memories of her mother, whom she can get to know through the memories of her father, her auntie Heidi, her older brothers and her extended family.

  83. oh! sending so much+++ love and strength and light to you, Alice’s husband, her sons and brand new daughter and to all those whose lives were touched by her’s! it looks like she was a beautiful person. peace and hugs, gen

  84. Jenn Wilson says:

    I’m so so sorry to hear about Alice. I’m holding your brother and his kids in my heart and sending so much loving energy and peace.
    I’m holding you in my heart too. You are not alone.


  85. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May you find comfort from one another during this time of great loss. Sending love and positive thoughts to all of you.

  86. Trashstar says:



    My sincerest condolences to you and your brother at this most difficult of times…

    Love and light to you


  87. Prayers and heartbreak for your dear family. My husband and I faced these same fears while I struggled with cancer for four years, diagnosed 6 weeks after my 4th child – and only son – was born. God chose to heal me – I went into remission in February – but we know how gut-wrenching those moments feel. Much love to you all.

  88. This is absolutely heartbreaking. Take time to mourn and experience her loss. The pain means that she was loved beyond imagination and that is a wonderful, life affirming thing. Sending thoughts your way.

  89. I’m sorry to hear of your loss. You and the rest of your family will be in my prayers. Hard as it is to see sometimes, know that God works for the good of those who love him.

  90. I am so sorry for the pain your family is experience. May every breath bring you peace, comfort, and love. Alice may have left her body, but she will always be in your hearts.

  91. Christine says:

    Wishing you lots of prayers and peace!

  92. Sending love and prayers that He will wrap His loving arms around you all. Lifting you up!!!

  93. Death is the one thing in the world that always leave people baffled, blown off their feet, and utterly confused-whether the cause of death is known or not.
    You have been blessed with knowing such an amazing, amazing woman. I cannot begin to describe how spectacular and brave Alice seems to be.
    Your love for her gives me hope that her sheer amazingness will continue to shine through the world, and most importantly, her beautiful daughter.
    Stay strong, we’re all here for ya!
    Have faith. With faith comes belief. With belief comes strength. With strength comes everything.

  94. Stephanie says:

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Sending love and comfort in your direction….. <3

  95. Dear Heidi and family,

    Know that there are many of us who grieve with and for you. Our hearts and souls reach for the same goal as you and you family: comfort. We are all here for you in whatever way we can support you all through this troubling time.

    Peace be with you all.


  96. I am so sorry for the terrible loss of Alice that your family is experiencing. Just by looking at pictures of her I can tell what a beautiful soul she has. May your faith comfort you all through this and serve as an inspiration to others. Keeping all of you in my prayers.

    Angie xx

  97. Heidi –
    My heart is breaking for your entire family, but especially for your brother and his three little ones. Alice must have been one extraordinary woman – how difficult to lose her, especially in this way. Praying for peace and moments of breathtaking joy for your family as you struggle to put the pieces back together. Especially praying for the life of your sweet baby niece – that she would bring joy to all those who meet her, and that when the time comes, that she would understand who her mother was and know that she loved her with everything.

    God Bless You all.

    Hugs from a lovebombing stranger in Wyoming!

  98. Heidi –

    Hello there…I’m just one of the many folks who are blessed to be a part of the Love Bomb team that shares in these stories every week. We hope our love and encouragement can somehow, someway, provide a little blessing to your family during this very sad time! I’m so glad you have a faith in God that helps you cope with these very hard issues in life and gives you a hope and a peace that “surpasses all understanding.” It sounds like your family is very close, and I know that will be an immeasurable blessing to your brother as he raises their kids in honor and loving memory of his wife. Thank you for sharing your story, you feelings, your faith. Many prayers for hope and reconciliation to come your way. I just happened to think about that famous verse when reading Heidi’s story – “Greater love has no one than this…” Heidi gave her life for her daughter, and she will always be a loving hero for that.

    God bless your family during this time.
    – Jonathan

  99. Dear Heidi,

    Tears flowed reading about Alice and the loss that your family face. Words will never be enough, but I hope the Love Bomb community has helped to remind all of you that you are not alone.

    Although the gap in your hearts will never be made whole again, it is my hope that memories of Alice will evoke sunshine joy and laughter as you recollect rather than tears and pain.

    May peace and strength fill your hearts in the coming days, though challenging they may be. Be blessed mightily.

    Hugs and love from a lovebomb member halfway around the world!

  100. “The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of eternity.” ~Lucius Annaeus Seneca

    Dear Heidi,

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I know that this is a difficult time for you, your brother, and his children and that words may be of little comfort right now. But you have support and you have each other. Sending good vibes your way!

    Peace and love

  101. Heidi, I’m wishing you all the very best in this trying time. Stay strong, and know that while she may no longer be with us, she brought another beautiful life into the world. That life will not be hers, but it will be wonderful, and we will all look into her daughter’s eyes and smile, knowing that whatever happens you have your faith to buoy you up.

    May Alice rest in peace.



  102. I cannot imagine what you all are going through but I can feel the love and faith in your life. I will be praying for your brother and his children as well as for Alice every day. I am sure God is there next to you taking care of all of you.
    Receive lots of love from a lovebomber in Mexico City.

  103. Hang in there and be strong for yourself and extended family you are loved!

  104. Dear Heidi,

    It must be so very hard indeed for the husband of Alice to have lost his lifes companion. For the two boys and the new little girl, it must be even more unfathomable to have lost a person who would have guided them in life. They will have to learn so much more on their own now. The things I learned from my mother could never have been thought by my father and vice verse. I hope people will be kind to them and give them time or space. I wish you whole family all the best for the future. Sincerely hugs

  105. I don’t even know where to begin. My heart aches for you and Alice’s entire family, who clearly adored her. I pray that God holds you tightly, giving you strength as a family, just as Alice would have wanted. God bless her sweet baby girl, and may she grow up knowing how much her mother loved her.

  106. I do not have the wisdom or words for your situation.
    However I can pray. I pray that you all be given the comfort when needed,
    the laughter when needed, the peace when needed, the confidence when needed,
    sweet memories when needed, and courage, grace, as needed.
    You are held by the Almighty.

  107. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. Hang in there and trust in the Lord with all of your heart.

    It breaks my heart to read about what happened to Alice. She sounded like such a beautiful person. I’m sending lots of love and prayers to you and your extended family.


  110. Your faith in the Lord is admirable, and I hope that you continue growing closer to the Lord during this time of pain. I am so sorry for your loss and for Alice’s husband and children who must live life without her. I will pray for you and the rest of your family and will ask God to give you comforted hearts and a trust in His plan. I do not know the circumstances of Alice’s walk with the Lord, but if she had a faith like you do, she is sitting with Him right now watching you all. Take care and peace be with you.

I don’t have any answers, just a wish that you are comforted even in some small way by all the people who care and my continued prayers for you and your family.
