Sorry to hear of the death of Mr. Kimbrough. The Bible writer Job once asked "If a man dies shall he live again "? (Job 14:14) Our Heavenly Father Jehovah(Psalms 83:18) cares and loves you. He is the God of all comfort and will comfort you during this sad time. (2Corinthians 1:3,4) He sent his only begotten son,Jesus Christ to die for mankind so that we might live. ( 1John 4:9; John 3:16) We look forward to God's promises at Revelation 21:3,4 and Isaiah 33:24 being fulfilled when death,sickness, and pain will be no more. May you have peace.

My deepest condolences to Ollie's family. Remember you are not alone at this difficult time. "God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress." Psalm 46:1

I am really going to miss you. The best friend/brother in law this world could give. Don’t have too much fun with “Bumpy”.
