    We are to rejoice when our loved ones dies and goes to heaven! But it is hard to let go and sometime it is hard to let go when we want to spend more time with them. But we know when God says come on home my child we have to let go and let Him take His child home! The memories that I have with out families together will be with me till judgement day! God gave the Carelock and Moss families the wisdom to teach their children the Bible and how to teach their children by living by example by reading and living the word of God. It was joy to go to their houses and have fun with everyone. Love you guys!
