How to Cope After the Death of Your Child

On April 1, 2000, while Angela was in Japan on military duty, her husband and four children were involved in a fatal car crash. The Alexander’s car fell 25 feet off the highway and landed upside down on top of two parked vehicles with people inside. 
The people in their vehicles were extremely shaken up but survived! Sadly her two eight-year-old sons didn't survive.

But the story does not end there. One of the many miracles was although Murice and Roger passed instantly at the scene, they had both written goodbye letters to their family above and beyond their age or grade levels.  You will not want to miss listening to this amazing story. 

"The healing of your broken heart is not an indication that you no longer miss or love your loved ones" ~ Angela Alexander
