  1. Heavenly Father, I offer this prayer to you, to strengthen the Lindgren family. Father God, we don't know the why's of your ways, and it hurts very badly. Father God, hold these people and all who mourn in Your hands, bless them to the level that they can feel Your presence through the pain. May they be comforted in knowing that others are there for them, and to be there to lean on in these times of sadness. In Jesus most holy name, AMEN!
