    Louis, Vicky, Linda, Jeff and Tim,and families;
    Our prayers are with you. From Paul regarding his impending death:

    From his first imprisonment:
    Philippians 1:21-24

    “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body.”

    Those of us left here morn the loss of a loved one, but your husband, father, and grandpa is now in a far better place!

    Charlie and Sherry Myers
