    Sorry for the loss of your love one. John 5:28, 29 assures us that Jesus will restore life to those who has died. Revelation 21:3, 4 gives further assurances that death will be swallowed up forever. These are wonderful blessings to look forward to knowing that your loved one is in God’s memory. Hope this thought brings comfort.

    Billy Myler was a childhood friend when I lived on South College Avenue. He lived with his sweet and kind grandmother whose name I knew only as Mrs. Myler. The Smiths lived between my home and Billy’s home. The Cosbys lived to the South of Billy – then there was the town branch south of the Cosbys – a creek that kids loved to look for crawdads in – We seemed to make our own fun whether it was chasing lightning bugs or sharing a sled to go down South College hill if we had snow. I never kept track of Billy after my family moved from the area, but seeing his name in the paper has brought so many great memories back. My God give rest to his soul.
