love conquered all!

years and owned his own lawn service as he enjoyed
servicing his community.

Quintin - We just heard about the passing of your dad. David and I both have walked the path you now find yourself on. Words help some. Time helps more. But the Holy Spirit helps the most. God says in Deuteronomy that He "The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." We can both attest that it is the Spirit of God Who will help you on this journey if you call out to Him. We are praying for you and your family.
