Howard, my family friend who died recently, had a service today. The family is holding up as best they can but they told me they are "tired", especially his wife Nancy. The service was packed with 350 people, alot of them from the school he worked at and the Mayor of Bridgeport commeroated October 5th in his honor. He was an amazing man who did so much for everyone, and we are all really REALLY sad about the loss.
Still, the last word's of Romans 37-39 hit home:
" For I am convinced that neither death, nort life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor heightm nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to seperate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord".
