R.I.P Uncle Mickey!! We Love You!
It is because our Lord Jesus Christ went through the depths of agony to the last ebb in the Garden of Gethsemane, because He went through Calvary, that we have "boldness to enter into the holy place" O. Chambers. Being in agony, he prayed more earnestly. Luke 22:44 - Our Sincere Sympathy and Prayers are with the Family at this sad time. We're Sorrow for Your Loss.
We Love You, Sheila Clark & Family
