Another one of Grandpa's friends passed on. We just came from the calling hours at the funeral home. His name was Vance Dean and his sons names are Chad, Brad, Trevor and Jared. Jared passed on a few years ago from a hard life on drugs. Hope this isn't to much information but I thought maybe John, Steve or Kathy might have known one of the sons. From the word we got tonight was Vance had lung cancer and had been suffering for some time. He finally refused his treatments, stopped taking his meds, stopped eating and went out and bought 12 cigars and smoked them in 2 days. He had SUFFERED long enough.
Charity SUFFERETH long, and is kind... rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth.
1 Corinthians 13:4,6-8
Lord, give me a loving heart today as I practice patience, kindness, and truthfulness. Amen.
