On this Memorial Day, may Jesus our God of comfort hold you all in the palm of His hand as you remember Michael's life legacy. Cherish in your hearts the many warm and fond memories that you share. The lyrics of this song of our Lord Jesus have always helped us through all the different seasons of life and we gladly share 'Be not afraid. I go before you always. Come, follow Me, and I will give you rest'.

My condolences to the family for your loss. 2 Cor. 1:3,4 describes God as the Father of tender mercies who comforts us in all our trials. Along with your fond memories, may Jehovah God (Psalm 83:18) provide you with the comfort you need during this difficult time.
