His Lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful so, I set thee over many things; bask in the joy of thy lord.” Matthew 25

A very special thank you to all who made this day so memorable. Over the years there have been wonderful people who’ve touched my life in many positive ways. Some of these dear ones have passed on but look around you today, many more are still with us. God can work through all of us when we allow Him. He’s a gentle God who allows us to find our true selves — In all this free will it’s important to remember that he is always there if we invite him in. Peace and Love, Tom
