    I am sorry to read of your loss. Many have lost loved ones and want to see them again. The Bible actually says what will be death’s unavoidable eventuality at Revelation 21:4, which says, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.‚ÄĚ Death will be gone forever. May this be of encouragement.

    I deleted my Facebook eulogy to better write it here. I’ve been looking at the things Lavonia left me this morning. I have to say, im just devastated by the loss of someone who loved me so much. I know it’s weird to put it that way. But I often feel that I love so many people. My friends, co workers, patients, men and I so rarely feel the love back. From the first week I met Lavonia she loved me, even if i was acting stupid. And Laurie Etta you have been a great friend to me, really the best friend to me in all of my life. You never forget me, never hurt me, always there for me. You and your sisters have been good to me. I’ve said it before, and ill say it again. Letting me come, spending time with Lavonia the last couple of months, comforting me at the Hospice house….showed me again who all of your girls are. Showed me how your mom raised you, how you live your lives. There will never be a time any of you need me that I won’t come. Just ask.
