Upon which he was shortly re-hired to consult the existing employees on the function and location of the steam traps. He then enjoyed wintering in Clearwater, Florida with his wife.

Losing a loved one is a terrible time to endure, we often feel helpless. But there is hope for us in the bible here at:(Isaiah 25:8)" He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away tears from all faces." This prophecy tells us that one day we will see our loved ones brought back to life right before our very eyes! Unbelievable Right? So what can you do to see this prophecy fulfilled? The answer is to seek and draw close to Jehovah God and you will see his promises unfold.....
