Obedient humans will soon receive the full benefit of Jesus' ransom sacrifice.
This will occur under the rule of the Kingdom for which the upright have long prayed, saying:
“Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. Let your kingdom come.
Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth.” (Matthew 6:9, 10)

Lori, where do I start? You are my best friend, and the sister I never had. I love you with all my heart. I have been in your shoes, I want to come home, and give you the hug you and I both need. Mom and Dad Arny knew me so well. You and them were there for myself, and my children always. Knowing that I will always be greatful. Having them in my life was a blessing. You are so special. I can on and on. His faith was special, and know that he loved you and your family. He is with the love of his life. I was honored to have him my life, and his love for my family. I will always be there for you, and your family. You know what ever your family needs, I am here always, and forever. As always, all my love to you, and the family. Beth and family.

Lori, my sincerest condolences to you and your family in the loss of Harry. I am praying that God will bring strength and comfort to all of you in the days ahead. Harry was a wonderful man. I always have, and always will have, so many fond memories of he and your mom both. I was blessed to have been around them back when we were kids (the formative years). They always made your friends feel welcome (and at the same time they knew which ones to run off)! Love and prayers,
