“Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
fixing our eyes on Jesus,
the author and perfecter of faith,
who for the joy set before Him endured the cross,
despising the shame,
and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
~Hebrews 12:1b-2, NASB~

H. Wayne “Sonny” Clark
“God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, so He put His arms around you and whispered, “Come to Me;” With tearful eyes we watched you slowly fade away, and though we loved you dearly we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, your hard working hands stopped to rest, God broke our hears to prove to us he only takes the best. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same but as God calls us one by one the chain will link again.” Author unknown.
