"Like a Bridge over Troubled Water" Song by Simon and Garfunkel

" When you're weary, feeling small, When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all;
I'm on your side. When times get rough and friends just can't be found, Like a bridge over
troubled water I will lay me down, Like a Bridge over troubled water I will lay me down."
Unlike the words of this song, Sherry, Debbie, Amy and all your family members remember we
are all here to stand behind you and help hold you up. You are in our thoughts and our Prayers.

As rough as the waters are and raging from a recent storm, we are here to comfort you and encourage you.

Though it may rain and storm and the Sunlight and beams of joy seem so far off, Please keep in mind we have not forsaken you and more importantly God has not forsaken you.

As old and rickety as the bridge seems it is strong enough to hold you up.

This wood is strong and will never fail and you will make it across this bridge.
God Bless you tonight!!!

Oh Jamie!
My precious, precious friend. As I sit here and write this message to you I have tears running down my face. I am trying to figure out what I have done to deserve such a wonderful precious friend. I love you sweetie. Thank you so much, you will never know how this lifted my spirits tonight. Thank you. I have been teary eyed all day. This has taken such a toll on me. I have to be strong when I talk to Debbie, but find I can cry at home when I am alone. Thank you my precious friend. I love you, Sherry

Wow Jamie, those bridges are incredible, I would love to see them in person. Thank you for stopping by and reading the story on the praying hands this evening. I also wanted to say I think its wonderful that you are trying to coordinate something for Amy and Debbie, they do need help, but they can never ask for it. I think you are a remarkable Christian. Take care, and have a blessed evening.

Long story another time .
I have actually been thinking about the lyrics to this song in connection to
Debbie,Amy,Sherry,Heidi,and all the rest of the family and friends touched by Amy's life.
