    I had seen the request for prayer on FB. I prayed that moment. God loves her even greater, as difficult as that may seem. Julia will always live in our hearts and memories, just like John will. Hold yourselves close to God for understanding and guidance. I will continue to pray for you and your family in this difficult time, and know that I am here, should there be anything I can do.
    Take care,
    Ron Ringler
