Sharon, I am so sorry to hear of Hodd's passing. I do know this that there is no sorrow or tears in Heaven. There is also no more pain. Our hearts hurt here, but we know that nothing will compare when we see HIM face to face.
Keep hanging on to our Savior. HE will never let go of us. HE has promised to never leave us or forsake us. NEVER..
