Words cannot begin to express how grateful we are to each one of you. We know the Lord will bless every one who showed us a kindness. Death is God carrying us in one arm while the other flings aside Heaven's door to welcome us back to the blazing hearth of our first home, while those inside, hav- ing arrived before us, rash to the door like glad children shouting, "They're here!" Death has a bad name on earth, but in heaven it's a homecoming party every time the door opens. God does not forget those earthbound children, sad and left behind. God leaves the party early to enter into their despair and to get them ready for their own parties someday. - John 14:1-6 The Family of Stacy Jorgenson, son Danny, parents Daniel and Joanne, brother and family Doug and 14-1 Michelle I __ CARD OF THANKS The list of thank yous seems so large, it is hard to know how to start.
