    I am so sorry this has happened to such a great man. I know you can lean on the comfort the Lord has afforded those who love Him.

    Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11

    Your friend always,
