As we make the journey trou this life, death is our final stop. Even the perfect man, Jesus Christ, "Gave way to tears." so greatly grieved was he over the death of his friend, of seening our loved ones once again.What a wonderful gift we have been givin, to have the hope of seening our loved ones once again.

You always treated me like your very own grandaughter.
I thank you for always taking the time for your great-grandchildren.
And although Carlina was far too young to remember much about you, I promise to always remind her of the story behind her namesake...
You're only a thought away.
Rest in God's arms, Pops...we love you.

Juanita, Great-Grandson, Peyton & Great-Grandaughter, Carlina Colette
