Isaiah 40: verse 31 says, " They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
Go rest high Uncle Chris, your work here is done. We find comfort with the Lord our Savior. Comfort with our family and friends. He will be missed. Dear family and friends, we should love each other now in this time of need, aside the differences and comfort one another. I pray for you all.
