My heart aches for the Eck family. I pray that God gives you a peace which surpasses all understanding. Although it is difficult to understand God's Will sometimes, He reassures us that our faith will sustain us. I can only imagine what Steve is experiencing today in the presence of God. My sincere sympathy.
