Sincerest condolences to the Kirkwood family. Although Francis had many challenges in her life, she didn't give up. We pray that be the same for the family at this very difficult time. Knowing that Almighty God Jehovah cares for us and invites us to throw our burdens on him at Psalms 55:22 really does help.
