The Other Side
This isn''t death - it''s glory!
It is not dark - it''s light
It isn''t stumbling, groping, or even faith - it''s sight!
This isn''t grief - it''s having my last tear wiped away;
It''s sunrise - it''s the morning of my eternal day!!!

Your family is in our prayers.

Sad to see one of the nicest guys I have ever met leave so soon. I will remember all the times he waved as he went by on the hiway. LIfe is short. Many years ago another man who lost a son told me to "Love them while you have them." Such a true statement. Our thoughts are with your family at this time.
