All went quite well and the Lord truly blessed both of us during the 16 days that he was gone. He preached the funeral and his brother received military honors at the graveside ceremony.
Today Johnny returned, even able to arrive one hour earlier than scheduled. Did I not say that He truly blessed us?! We are thankful to be back together again. Many thanks to those of you who prayed for us during this time. He is always our comfort, protection and strength.
