    Hey Diana:

    No words can take away your pain. Send me an email if you need to talk. May God give y’all His peace that passes all understanding. When my Butch died God gave me Isaiah 41:10. That scripture has gotten me through much.

    Much love,

    He had a pureness and kindness that touched and blessed others in life’s path, as well as was a wonderful child of God and friend. Our prayers are with the family and their hurting hearts at this time. I’m sure he is always with you in spirit and he is ecstatically enjoying his new beautiful body in heaven. We miss him and pray for God’s loving arms to embrace you and your family with his comfort and love. Three weeks ago, CJ said and reminded me, “put everything in the Good Lord’s hands”.

    Pastor Laurie Smith says:

    Church Without Walls heartfelt prayers are with you guys.
    Earth’s loss is heaven’s gain. May Holy Spirit comfort you all as only he can.
    We love you Mary, Dennis & Meagan
