Now and again God sends from the heavens an angel. He knows we need angels in our lives.

An angel to whom we can turn when we need strength, encouragement, or maybe just a giggle or two.

My brother and I were so saddened to hear about Uncle George's passing. We both talked today about what a happy, cheerful and encouraging guy he was. He was so supportive of us and we will miss him so very much. He was a positive light in this world!
