So sorry for your loss.  I remember  John Paul   being the baby Jesus in our Christmas program when he was just  a few weeks old!  I saw where you lost Jewel not to long ago.    My mother would say." Trouble comes in bunches!"  However, Our God is in control and He is the God of all comfort.  With my love, thoughts and prayers, Virginia Stadler
