My heart goes out to the 43 children and the entire family. Ezra Roy and Virginia will forever be remembered by family and friends. We know his rest will be brief; to return in the resurrection. Acts 24:15 Jesus will call and Mr Willis will answer. Job 14:14 We remember the account of Lazarus when he had been in the grave 4 days. Jesus said he was sleeping, because he was going to wake him. When he said COME OUT, he did ,just as your parents will. We will be overjoyed to greet them back. Especially, when there will be no more war under Christ’s heavenly Kingdom government. Isaiah 9:6,7 You will find much comfort in,“Enjoy Life Forever” After 3 1/2 yrs living in Nebraska, I can see why they chose Savannah. Warm Christian Love, Sandy Wirfs
