My condolences go to the family of Mr. Rhinehart. May you be comforted by God's promise for earth's future inhabitants found at Revelation 21:4: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.

"the doors opened and He has gone in to his eternal Home. There he'll be with loved ones throughout all eternity....and see JESUS sitting by the crystal sea. " What a glorious time that will be.... As a family, there are lots of memories with you both and seeing those 2 boys grow up. They are a lot of fun and even today when I rarely see Michael, he hasn't forgotten me. Just the other day, Rose it was so good to see you. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Blessings and love from Kathy, Jason & Charles Wilson
