A beautiful tribute to a brother in Christ. Trusting that the grace, peace, love, comfort and strength of our Lord Jesus Christ will be your sufficiency. Julie -- my love to you, sweet sister and friend in Christ. I look forward to meeting Les when we are both whole in the Presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. Praising God that, because of and in our Savior Jesus Christ, we say "see you later" and never say "goodbye". Love you and praying.
