“For each sunset, there’s a sunrise, in a land we cannot see. A place of love and endless dawn, that’s called eternity. And in time, there’ll be a reunion, sweeter far than words can say. With those who are waiting for us in the land of endless day.”
Jody is there now with all that have gone before and he’ll be waiting for us when it’s our time.
That is our comfort.
The struggle is over Jody. We love you.
