Kathy, Chad, Jenelle, Brian, Grant and families,

I have such a heavy heart today hearing about your loss. I can remember being at your house 100 times as a kid and will never forget his big smile or the tone of his voice when he wanted you guys to do something! It has been 20 years or more since I have seen him and can remember him laughing and playing cards like it was yesterday!!!!! You are all in my thoughts and prayers!

“Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life:he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die”.
