    Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

    John 14:1-3

    Mrs. Vent, thank you for your note. My mother-in-law Jeanne Cooper remembers you and your family. It brightened our day to know that someone from his past remembered him. Thank you so much. Sincerely, Pat Cooper

    Revelation 21:4
    And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

    The pain he suffered is done, he is in heaven rejoicing with the angels watching and waiting till the day he is joyfully reunited with his loved ones once again… you are all in our thoughts and prayers… Love Jessica, Marion, and our three children
