Ecclesiastes 3: 1-4

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every
matter under heaven;
A time to be born, a time to die;
A time to plant, a time to pick what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance.”
DENNIS,
I KNOW YOU ARE NOW REUNITED, DANCING AND LAUGHING WITH YOUR BELOVED SON AGAIN.
WE BATTLED TOGETHER WITH THIS DISEASE CALLED CANCER. IF NOT FOR THAT WE NEVER WOULD HAVE HAD OUR CONVERSATIONS AND FOR THIS ONE COMFORT I THANK GOD.
REST IN PEACE MY BROTHER
DENNIS.
YOUR SISTER LUCIE
