"Friends are friends forever if the Lord's the Lord of them. And a friend will not say never and the welcome will not end. Although it's hard to let you go, in the Fathers hands we know that a lifetime's not too long to live as friends." Michael W. Smith ... I am thankful for the sweet memories of the many years we shared ... What a grand blessing and what a grand sorrow ...
