1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
John 14:1-3

My hear goes out to Jerry Dale, Tye and Marie and family. Some of my fondest memories as a kid was at Aunt Gladys'. I would spend the night and go in the garden and just have a great time. There was so much love in that home. I miss those days. May God Bless
