This kingdom will bring us, no more sickness, pain, death, wars, food shortages, and tears. Revelations 21:3-5; Psalms 46:8,9; Psalms 72:16.

Was saddened to hear of Larry's passing. Arlene and I always enjoying visiting with him when we went to see my parents. The way his face would light up when Jaylynn spoke him was a blessing. Prayers to all of his family now and in the days to come.

We look forward to seeing Larry alive again in the resurrection. Jesus promised, "Do not be amazed at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out to a resurrection." John 5:28, 29
