Isaiah 59:1 says God's hand has not become too short, nor has his ear become too heavy that it cannot hear. Please pour your heart out to God for strength and he will hear you.

Although I knew him for a short time, we shared fun conversations, our daughters, Jennifer and Eilene were friends, and we loved county government. Rest in peace, Mr Gray.
