  1. To Jonna, Zack, and the McClure family,

    We are sorry to hear of John’s passing. He was a good man and fought the good fight with much courage. He is in the presence of the Lord and is in perfect health.

    (Rev 21:3-5 NIV) And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. {4} He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” {5} He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

    In Christ’s name
    Pat, Julie, and Jeff Lockhart
