Gwen was my wife's best friend. I lost my wife Bonnie on Jun 17,2017 to cancer. My heart goes out to the family. I want to share a verse with you that has helped me this past year. Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength, they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31. I hope those words will comfort you and make sure you give your spouse; your significant other; or your kids a hug and remember every day is a gift. Tim Tjaden

"To the family of Mrs. Sorensen I offer my sympathy during this difficult time for you all. May comfort from God (Psalm 94:19), give you strength to cope, and may His promise be your hope, the promise of a resurrection, (Acts 24:15). I pray these passages touch hearts and give you solace as they have me in my times of loss."
