    A quote from Reverend Billy Graham

    “Jesus speaks to our grieving hearts words of comfort, like any child longs to hear when his parents are leaving him. What does a child say when you go away? The child says, ‘Where are you going? Can I go with you? Who is going to stay with me?’

    “Jesus called his disciples ‘children, ’ and in death’s presence, we are all children. Death comes to us all and we need the hope of which Jesus speaks: ‘In my Father’s house are many mansions.’ … Here we are as pilgrims, living in a frail, flimsy house, subject to disease, pain and peril. But at death, we exchange this crumbling, disintegrating tent for a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.”
    May the peace of Christ be with your family during this difficult time.

    To Patricia, Angela, Andrea, Randy, Rory, Barry and Blane my heart and prayers are with you at this time of loss. John was very kind and generous to me as a young man visiting your home and your cottage. He laughed at our teenage pranks and made feel welcome. As an adult he gave me business and trusted me to do my best work for him. These are gifts I cherish as a memory of John Harrison
