    My deepest condolences to the family concerning your lost. The lost of a love one can be very grievous but we most remember what God has showed us and remember his word in times like these. ( 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 KJVS
    But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. [14] For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. [15] For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. [16] For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: [17] Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. [18] Wherefore comfort one another with these words.) So please let these words comfort your soul and may the God of peace comfort your hearts and bring you peace.
    Poohie was a life time friend whom I will always remember.
