Joni, Ted & girls – I’m heartsick for you, I’ll never forget what a happy, full of life little kid Teddy was….and wow did he ever grow into a handsome young man ( I mean movie star good looks) I haven’t seen the kids since they were all little, they’re all gorgeous & precious & am so glad I’ve gotten to watch them grow up from afar ( via Facebook!) I know it’s so hard dealing with Teddys loss right now, but he is standing in the light and glory of our Heavenly Father & you truly will see him again . Our time on this earth is a drop in the bucket compared to eternity breathing ethereal air & forever wrapped in the un-ending love of our God the Great I Am. I don’t know what demons tortured Teddy in his time on earth but know this we all receive perfect wings when we enter the heavenly everafter. I pray that Gods mercy rains down on you & gives you strength & he heals your broken hearts. This is when you as a family all lean on each other & look to our Lord for strength, he will comfort you in your time of sorrow. I am again so heartsick for you & wish there was someway to lessen this hurt that I know you are suffering. I’m sending lots of prayers up for you & your family, Warmly & Sincerely, Debbie Shockey

God knows and understands. We do not. May His peace comfort you and keep you until you are with Teddy again in heaven.
