Favorite scripture:

John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn; but that the world through him might be saved.

The family requests those who wish to express sympathy to consider making a donation to Grace College Theological Seminary.
