Nine Years! I did not think we would make it through the first year, yet here we are. Joshua is working and driving around, getting ready to graduate from high school. Justine is very tall and lanky and paying lots of soccer, and he will finish the 10th grade this year.

Uncle Johnny has come to you in Heaven. I am sure there was a great reunion with all of you there; PePa, Uncle Red, Jim, Jack, Papa and Ma Carter; Uncle Johnny and many more. Base on the way the world is today, it seems we are in the last days of Grace. Soon we shall be taken out of this world!

Jamie Jody and the girls are doing great. Getting ready for our upcoming vacation to celebrate a 40th birthday this year!!

Durham Police and Duke carried the story of your death and your picture today. While it was sad, it was also warming to know so many still remember you, and other that did not are thanking you for your service as an officer of the law and as a military veteran.

I miss you so much! Eternity awaits each us who walk with Christ. Soon, I will see you again! Love you always!

"And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them and be their God!" Rev. 21:3.
