Janet, In times like this no words are sufficient to dispel the sorry in you and the Rushing family. I know in my heart that Uncle Jerry will be sorely missed. The one thing that is constant is that our Mighty Lord is still on His Throne. He will give you all of your needs through the riches and glory of His son Jesus Christ. Psalms 121:1-2 says I lift my eyes to the hills, where does my help come from, My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. We all must face this some day. I hope you will be ready. John 3:16 Sissy and I love you. Mike and Sissy Rushing
