    I can't even imagine how your feeling. I remember seeing the love you two had for each other when we ( Julie and I the whole 2995 south ) I remember it was real. I will pray for the Manning/Wilson family that God will comfort all of you in this time. My heart is hurting for you. I love you and all of your babies ( big and little) may peace be with you all.
