Shelby and Michael I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your beautiful mother. She was such a wonderful woman, friend and mother. I have so many fond memories of the friendship we shared and of you two and my girls playing when you were little at your grandmothers house. May God Bless you and your family during this difficult time.

My heart goes out to Jody’s family at this grievous time. Jody would be like trying to hold a moon -beam in your hand. Such a bubbly delightful person spread her joy around the world reflecting God’s love. What a beautiful heart God understood completely. We will be thrilled to see Jody by virtue of the resurrection. John 5:28,29. May the family be comforted knowing that soon the whole earth will be transformed in to a paradise where there will be no more pain, sickness, or death Rev 21:3,4. Jesus sacrifice has made this possible. He will call and Jody will answer Job 14:14; just as Lazarus was awakened from sleep ,in the grave when Jesus said: COME OUT.
