It's not going to be the same on Sundays anymore my Friend when I come up to visit you and Donna. I'm going to miss your smile, your handshake but most of all is when we got to go outside and just sit and visit for awhile! You sure loved the warmth of the Sun, the gentle breeze and just being outside sure put a big smile on your face. Well my friend I know you and your wife are enjoying them moments right now so this is not goodbye it's so long until we see each other again in the meantime enjoy our Lord's Paradise and we well all be together again one day Rejoicing with our Lord Jesus Christ!
