    I am sorry for your loss and pain. I pray for healing, peace and comfort for you, my sister.

  6. Geno,
    I remember the first time I invited you to a Bible study in L’ville. Those guys ending up being some of our best friends for life. I thought maybe the men’s group would be a good idea. Never imagined the way you would end up influencing me Gene. You challenged me spiritually and I can never re pay you for that. I remember Anna and Jane discussing that maybe they should introduce you to me. Funny how that turned out. I know you are sitting in the presence of the Lord. ” Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with god through our Lord Jesus Christ – Romans 5:1 I am not sure who ends up missing you the most your friends or your dogs. Man, did they love you! Jane, so sorry to hear of Gene’s passing. Blessings of peace and mercy to you.
    In CHRIST,
    Jon Thompson

  8. Revelation 21:4
     And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away

  9. My deepest condolences to the family. God is the source of life and His Word can provide comfort during difficult and painful times like this. Acts 24:15 gives a wonderful hope of a resurrection for those we have sadly lost in death. May you endure and be at peace until you see your dear loved one again.
