    Dear Paul, Michele, and family
    “Come and rest awhile, my good and faithful servant.” This was my first thought when I read of Justin’s passing on Wednesday. I am happy that he and Ethel are reunited, and present in heaven with the Trinity. Please know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers these next weeks and months.
