My heart and thoughts go out to all of you. Your daddy was a sweet man.

Rev. Peter Marshall said,
"Those we love are with the Lord, we believe, and the Lord has promised to be with us, never to leave us nor forsake us: 'Behold I am with you always.' Well, if they are with Him, and He is with us...they cannot be far away."

I am praying God's peace and comfort enfolds you.

With Love,
