    I said ‘God it hurts’ And God said ‘I Know’
    I said ‘God I cry a lot’ And God said ‘That’s why I gave you tears’
    I said God I feel Alone’ And God said ‘That’s why I gave you loved ones’
    I said ‘God my loved one is dead’ And God said ‘I watched mine nailed to the cross’
    I said God ‘Where are they?’ And God said ‘Mine is on my right and yours is in the light.
    I said ‘God it hurts’ And God said ‘I know’

    To Amber’s parents and family, My deepest sympathy to
    all of you. Losing a child must to be the hardest thing any parent can deal with. Amber is a beautiful little girl. I am
    from Wise so I felt a connection. I hope she and Austin got
    to visit their grandparents there. I loved going “home’ to
    Wise often until my parents (Leta and D.P. Davis) died.

    recognized the Wheatley name. Sue Davis Addington
