May God's comforting words keep you in perfect peace.
As He Promised, He Will Do...
John 14:1-4 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.”

Crissy you are my sister and best cousin, we had so much fun together years and after years... God saw that she was getting tired, a cure was not to be, so he put his arms aroung her and whispered, "COME WITH ME." with tearful eyes, we watched her suffer, and saw her fade away. Although we love her dearly, we could not make her stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands to rest God broke our hearts to prove to us: He only takes "THE BEST"
