    Angela, please know that you and your family are in our prayers. “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God[a]; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.” John 14:1-4

    Angie, Makenzie, & Makayla my heart goes out to you during this time of your loss. Hold each other tight and remember all the good times with him. All the times he called you “lil darlin” each time he watched you up on that stage clogging and dancing your hearts out. All the birthdays that you each celebrated with him cause he will still be celebrating with you just watching from from somewhere else. Angie I know deep down how much you love him I see it in your eyes and smile you talk about him. Keep that glimmer and that smile cause he will see it. Sending you thoughts in prayers.
