As I told a family member this weekend, on Saturday I was awakened by the sun streaming into the bedroom window. My first thought was that Pete is now in the presence of God who is light. But what a dark cloud of sadness and grief comes in with the hope of this knowing.
We carry you in our heart and lift you up to the God of comfort. Under His mercy. With love, Dorothe and Matt Bonzo
