On April 6 my wife, 31, was killed in a car accident. My three young children 1,4,6 were in the back seat and survived with minor injuries.

He did not seem to be in distress but he was trying to protect me as usual. I...
Dear God,I still don't understand everything, but I am trying to focus on blessings right now instead of loses. Thank you for bringing Lisa into my life twentyone years ago.
