In obedience to Jesus, God's Son, we pray: "Our Father in the heavens . . . . Let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heavens, also on earth." Major problems that no other government has been able to solve will no longer exist when Jesus rules the earth as God's anointed King. Regarding death and Benjie, 1 Corinthians 15:26 assures us: "The last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing." Benjie will be brought back to life with the prospect of never dying again. (John 3:16) Have faith in this promise!

Big Ben. What can I say other than thank you for being the man you were. You welcomed me into our Forrester/Williams family with open arms 40+ years ago and never let go. Our world will never be the same without you. Your Uncle Sam, Sean, Casey, Trev, and I are devastated knowing that you are gone physically but will always carry you in our hearts. Be sure to save a place for us and have those ribs ready my friend.
