'Great wife, great mother, great friend' great testimony

To The Herald-Whig:

I'm responding to the article about Rich Bliven. It touched me deeply.

Rich, it is so wonderful to see and hear how your faith in God has helped you in your trials of life.

We don't know why things happen sometimes, but the fact that your love for your wife and family has stayed strong through it all is a wonderful witness to how God can help us get through the bad times.

To have you say, "If I knew that I was going to have to go through all this, it still would be worth it. Great wife, great mother, great friend," is a great testimony.

Many of us today need this example of faith and love to help us realize how God can help us in the hard times and it's worth it all.

May God continue to bless you as you minister to your family. I know you will have a special place awaiting in heaven for your faith and dedication.
