  1. Lisa

    My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family during this time.

    Take care- Gail Haubenestel ( co-worker of Lisa Reeves)

  2. I’m so sorry for your loss. I would love to leave a loving encouraging thought. Jehovah hates death; he views it as an enemy. ( 1 Corinthians 15:26) He has ” a yearning” to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. He longs to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again.- Job 14:14,15.

  3. Hahaha! You are famous! And I’ve alautcly got a draft started for a entry just about you two, since we had quite a few fun adventures together I’ll e-mail ya when I get a chance to post it. And believe it or not I’m almost half-way through the book!! I was a bit nervous at first about having enough time (especially when I saw the size of that thing!), but I think it’s going to work out. Yay!
