    God promises to give us the courage and strength, the hope and peace that we need day by day. The Bible promises that “neither death nor life…nor things present nor things to come… nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39).Rest in peace Kenny, you will be missed.
