    Gone too soon my friend. We had just talked about life and the way this world is. I’m so mad at whoever did this to you. I am so hurt and angry with the person who had the guts to do this to you. But every thing will come to light. Rest well and I will see you when I get there.

    I offer my condolences to you at this difficult time. When we are separated from our loved ones bc of death the pain at times seems unbearable. Death is described in the scriptures as mans enemy and it assures us that God(Psalm 83:18) will bring death to nothing, 1 Corinthians 15:26; Isaiah 25:8. Christ gave way to tears when his friend fell asleep in death and he raised his friend back to life and has promised to do the same for us in the near future, John 11:11-14; 17-25. I hope that special memories help you cope.

    To Rick’s mother & father “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. Jesus answered “I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me. John 14:1-6 Peace I leave with you my peace I give you I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” Your family & friend Minister Byron and Audrea Johnson
