    Lee, My sincere sympathies to you and your family. I continued to pray for Sandra and my husband as they battled multiple myeloma over the past years. I believe she fought hard right up until the end, and now she’s resting in the bosom of our Lord. May the comfort, sympathy and love of friends reflect God’s love and kindness at this time when you need Him the most. God’s peace, Pam Pellegrom
