The saddest day of our lives was January 2, 2014, when our dear husband and daddy, Gary Fike, died
suddenly. Our hearts were broken. So many of our dreams died with
him that day. Our lives would never be the same. But we have come a
long way in the past year-and-a-half in healing and adjusting to our new
lives. Of course, things will never be the same, and we will always miss Gary every day and every minute, but we also have hope, peace,
and joy that come only from knowing our Lord Jesus Christ and from being aware
of God’s blessings to us. We purposely look for these blessings, and we
find them. Lost and Found is one of the good things in our lives and is
important to our continual healing process. We also hope to inspire and
encourage others who are dealing with loss by sharing our story of hope.
We purposely choose to believe and hope and embrace the goodness in our lives
and let it live alongside our sadness.
