Family, I know to see Michael leave your side is heart breaking. We all can remember his smile and laughter when he was in our present. He will be missed but never forgotten. One thing we can hold onto is Jehovah God has promised a resurrection and then we will be able to see him once again. Until that time let keep in mind one of my favorite scriptures in the "Bible," that can give us comfort while we are grieving. Isaiah 33: 24 - And no resident will say, "I am sick." The people that are dwelling in the land will be those pardoned for their error. Just remember cousins you are in my prayers while you are going thru this time. Love your cousin and Family Shirley L DeGoldsby and Family
