I have known Jeanie since she and my cousin C.R. dated in high school. What a devoted couple, devoted to each other and to their children, their family, and their extended families. I will miss Jeanie and our phone conversations. Although she suffered much health-wise, she was always so kind and positive. Eric and Denise, I feel sure, know the high esteem in which they were held by their parents, and it was always obvious that those feelings were reciprocal. In this time of grief, God's promise to believers stated in I Thessalonians 4:13-14 can provide much comfort, for this is not the end, but the beginning of a different chapter, one in which we can also have a part. 13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. I praise God for this marvelous hope and the comfort it can give during these difficult times. With much love, Eula
