Wow beautiful work. God is truly going to bless you and your family, for being obediant, for praising him in the midst of your sorrow and heartache, for standing in faith. Hes amazing and faithful.

It is not too often that I am at a loss for words. Your album is beautiful, but not as beautiful as the story that goes with it or the person who compiled it. My heart tells me that Evan will be blessed for a lifetime by your love and prayers. Thank you for sharing your story with us.
