Hello Iracema, my name is Bella Bouma and I am the younger blonde girl who you hugged at the cemetery today (03-18-2021). I just wanted to say that you are in my prayers & that God always has a plan. It sounds like your husband was an amazing man, and that you guys had a relationship full of love for God and eachother. It is amazing that you have the gift of 14 grand children, and I hope your family continues on his legacy! I am so so sorry for your loss, and you and your family are in my prayers. I am so happy I was able to give you a hug, and I believe that was God giving you a hug through me. You are a strong woman and I wish you the best.
