Jesus said, "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe in me." John 14
Proverbs 3:5-6 also instructs us to: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

Jean was a joy to be around. I loved when she came to NC to visit with her brother Spencer and my sister Mary Carter. May God's love continue to comfort each of you in days ahead. She was a beautiful person and we will miss her here on earth but its up to us to live so that we will see her again one day. Make this choice today to live for Christ. Love to all of you!
