I am so sorry for the family’s loss. Death is one of the hardest trials to cope with. May you find comfort from the future promise recorded in Revelation 21:4 which says “he [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” We can be certain God will fulfill the words from his word the Bible.

CJ, you were always happy and talking about anything and everything. I'm still wondering what CJ stands for, I see you aren't telling still! Oh well, I will just keep wondering. You and Ruth were such an inspiration, always doing things together, even when it was time to go to Heaven, you followed her. I know you two are sitting on your cloud, watching Lisa and Terry. Love you Rusty and Linda
