God will sustain you with his "right hand of righteousness" during this difficult time and through each passing day. Isaiah 41:10 says: "Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness." Isaiah 41:13; I "am grasping your right hand, the One [God] saying to you,...'I will help you.'" Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)

So sorry Nancy, you are in our thoughts and sending so much love your way. Reading his obituary - what a fascinating man... Maybe now he's teaching John Lennon a few guitar licks? And at peace cuddling with all the rescues who have gone on :) Love you
