May you find courage to face tomorrow in the love that surrounds you today. At this time of sorrow may these truths sustain you...your father will always be as close as a memory and the God of all comfort is always as close as a prayer. May those beautiful yesterdays reamain in your heart, and your sorrow gently fade away. I have fought the fine fight, I have run the course to the finish, I have observed the faith.-2Timothy 4:7. As for me, I will lie down that I may sleep; I shall certainly awake, for Jehovah himself keeps supporting me. -Psalms 3:5
