  19. Hi guys,

    Very sad to hear this news. I loved spending time with Phil in hospital and playing a variety of card games. Always smiling and up for a chat. Never complaining. A great kid who is part of a wonderful family.

    Best wishes from us all at Challenge.


  20. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I pray that God grant you and your family comfort during this time. He knows your sorrow and He is the Comforter.

    I was thinking of a song written by Horatio Gates Spafford called Peace Like A River. I don't know if you know it but you can check it out at http://jmm.aaa.net.au/articles/.htm

    He wrote this after he experienced the loss of pretty much his entire family. I hope it will uplift you.

    God be with you.
    Much love,
    your sister in Christ,
