First, I want to thank the many of you who have greeted me on my birthday. I'm so thankful for the encouragement.
On a sadder note, we recently lost my mom's brother, Harry Goodman, to a heart attack this week. He had been in poor health but this was still very unexpected.
Although I won't be able to make the service, many of my family will be gathering in New Orleans for a service this weekend.
Please pray for them that they would call out to the risen Savior and that the God of all Comfort would comfort them through the abundance available through Jesus Christ.
