    Acts 24:15-"And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.”
    Soon God’s plan to reunite us with our loved ones will be fulfilled through His son Jesus Christ.
    What a blessing and wonderful gift to look forward to!

    Mr. Jimmy and I go way back with me and his son Jamey being in the same grade and graduating together. Mr Jimmy was one of my first coaches in little league baseball. He made such a strong impact to me as a boy that took those values with me and they molded me into man I am today. He was a loving man that would give you the shirt off his back. He impacted so many lives that he really didn't know. I will be forever grateful to him for his life teaching.
