My heart was heavy when I heard the news that one of my close family friends lost his beloved wife, Sharla, early yesterday morning while they were on a family vacation to go to Disneyland. She passed away suddenly in her sleep and her poor husband is now left with their five young children, 3 girls ages five and under, and twin baby boys only seven months old. I can't begin to imagine the heartache and grief they are experiencing. I couldn't stop thinking about what a huge void her passing is in this sweet family.
A memorial fundraiser
