  3. There is a time for everything, and a seson for every activity under Heaven. a time to be "born" and a time to "die", a time to "plant" and a time to "uproot", a time to "kil"l and a time to "heal", a time to "tear down" and a time "to build", a time to "weep" and atime to "laugh", a time to "mourn" and a time to "dance", a time to "scatter" stones and a time to "gather them". a time to embrace and a time to refrain, a time to "search" and a time to "give up", a time to "keep" and a time to "throw away", a time to "tear" and a time to "mend" a time to "be silent" and a time to "speak" a time to "love" and a time to "hate" a time for "war" and a time for "peace." When God created the world & each of us He promised to "leave a comforter" that comforter is the Holy Spirit. During your time of loss & so much pain, I pray that the Holy Spirit surrounds each loved one & brings comfort. I pray that God's Angels will gather you within their folds to protect, nurture & heal….I hope that you will find comfort in knowing that there are hundreds lifting each of you up in prayer. May God Bless You for now & forever! wE Love you all so very much….our hearts are hurting for you so much…I'm not sure what else we could possibly do to help each of you through this tragic time…except pray….& LOVE…& those you have freely. We love you all!

  4. Donna, Brandi, Justin we are so sorry about Richard- I know yall loved him very much. We are lifting yall up in prayer and we love yall very much.

  5. My heart goes out to all of you. Richard will always be with you in spirit for death is only a transition. He looks very much like his mother in this picture you posted. πŸ™‚ Much positive love I send to you.

  6. I'm sorry. I am sorry that all these years you tried to reach out to me, and I ran in the other direction. I kept telling myself that there will always be another day, another tomorrow; I allowed complacency to set in, and now it is too late. I am filled with so much regret and grief inside, that I didn't put forth the effort that you did in trying to build a relationship with one another. I hope that as you look down upon this world now, you aren't too disappointed with me. You met at a turbulent time in my life back in December 2006, and I regret that was your lasting impression of me. God Bless You, man. I love you and miss you terribly. Your Son,Jason
