In our lives it is rare to come across someone who would gladly do anything they can to help you, often times knowing themselves they were left with less. And not often enough do we cross paths with someone who was the same person on Saturday night as they were on Sunday morning. Joey you are as real as they come. I am truly honored and proud to call you a friend. God Bless

Dear Faye and family... I am so very sorry to learn of your loss of Bennie.
Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life. Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29/1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones. In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may sometimes seem insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1).
Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences and please do feel free to contact me.
