  1. I remember Uncle Al lifting me so high in the air my mom would hollar AL LET HIM DOWN BEFORE YOU DROP HIM!!
    Of course he never did it might have done me some good,did I mentioned he was tickling me so hard I would laugh till I cried!

    We know that God has provided a way to get to heaven ,his name is Jesus .The bible says “all have sinned and come short …”
    and that “the penalty for that sin is death”
    AHH but also says “That God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever should believe in him should NOT PERISH but HAVE EVER LASTING LIFE.”

    May God give peace and healing in this time of great grief.
