Hulstedt Family, I was so sorry to hear of the loss of your husband and dad. There is nothing to say that will make it better, so I won't try. Know that you will be in my prayers daily as I talk with my Heavenly Father. Isaiah 41:10... "Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you." Praying for strength and wisdom in your grief.
