    There is a natural body , and there is a spiritual body !
    Jesus says he is the resurrection and life, he that believes in me, thou he be dead, yet he lives !
    God can not lie, if he promises us life ever lasting, it is so !
    Trust in God, even when you have the moments of doubt ! Moments in fear…..
    Call on Jesus, even if you must whisper his name he hears us !
    He will bring comfort when words from others seem to fail !

    Dad, it’s been almost 2 weeks since you have been gone. I miss us laughing. I miss us cracking jokes on one another and you picking on me for laughing so loud. I miss our crazy family jokes and seeing you in your scrubs and robe every day after your long day of work. I miss your kindness and your cheesy dad jokes . I miss your personality, your kindness and selflessness for your family. But more than anything, I miss calling you dad! I’m honored to carry your last name through your son and I am honored to have known you. I will see you again one day so I will not cry long, you would not want that. I’m going to enjoy my life and live happily just the way you would want. I love you! You’re daughter-in-law!

    Janel: I’m saddened to know of the passing of my cousin, Stanley, and the great loss to you and your family. When John was at Riverside for many weeks, Stanley would stop in to see him, always with a smile and a word of encouragement for both of us.
    May God give you strength and peace in the days ahead.
