    What a beautiful spirit that will be greatly missed! He was such a blessing to see every day that I looked forward to that wonderful smiling face. Thanks for all of your service and your friendship to my children and all of the children that have come through Atlanta Elementary. I feel like God calls home the special ones once their job is complete and heaven gained a beautiful angel. May God bless each and every one of you, his family members!! Thank you for sharing him with us!!

    Sorry for your loss. It’s true that death brings sorrow and tears, and it is hard to adjust to the absence of a loved one. But what comfort and strength we gain from the hope found at Isaiah 33:24 which assures us that no earthly resident will say: “I am sick.” Psalm 46:1 reminds us that Almighty God is our refuge and strength.
