Am so sorry for your loss but know JL is walking the streets of heaven and meeting all those whove gone before but most excited to see Jesus. I have no doubts where he is spending eternity. He was always smiling when you saw him and he would usually ask me about someone we both knew from the plant. Then he would tell me something funny about them. If he missed church, you knew unless he was on vacation, he must be sick. What an example he was. He will be missed.
