I believe with all my heart that God has a plan for all of us, but it's often difficult to understand why he takes some of the best among us far too soon. My heart is breaking for my beautiful baby sister and for all of their incredible children. I'm praying that time and God's grace will bring them all comfort and peace. Steve, you were one of the finest human beings I've ever met and I'm so grateful to have had the honor to call you family. Jill and I will miss you dearly and I'm so sorry we couldn't be there to honor you this week. I've always believed that Heaven is an amazing place, but it just got a bit better.
