All the pain and grief is over. I am now at peace forever, safely at home in heaven at last. There is work still waiting for you. You must not idly stand. Do it now, while life remains. You shall rest in God’s own land. When that work is all completed, he will gently call you home. Oh, the rapture of that meeting and the joy to see you come!” Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Higginbotham family.
