Sharon and Family, though I couldn't be there with you today at your mother's homegoing service, please know that my thoughts and prayers were with you. Hold to the blessed promise of the Savior: "I go to prepare a place for you, that where I am, there you may be also." The two are once again "one".
My prayers for brighter days ahead,

To the family of Ms. Jan L. Wool folk
““Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.””
John 14:1-4 NKJV
