Interventions can be the difference between life and death for a drug addict or an alcoholic.

While some addicts or alcoholics have been so badly beaten and battered by their lifestyle that they grasp at the first opportunity to deal with their problems, others need an external influence and viewpoint in order to seek help.

Romans 12:15 "Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep."

That Romans verse reminds me that it seems that grief is more painful in weeks that follow death. I suppose because one realizes that it really is real. Thank you, to the people who have continued to send cards or speak greetings of comfort following Bonnie's death. We do appreciate the kindness of our friends.
