from Jared

My dad went to rest with the Lord this morning. God blessed me and mom to spend last night with him and to be with him, holding his hands, as he died. He is my only hero. I pray the Lord helps me become half the father he has been.

Your prayers and concern have helped me and mom so much. "So much" isn't enough, but that's all I have for now. God bless you all for how you carry our burdens.

Your brother in Christ Jesus,

Jared

We are so sorry for your loss. We have you in our thoughts and prayers. We never got to meet your father, but we are sure he must have been an amazing man to have raised such a wonderful son.
