In Loving Memory

In Loving Memory Of Layton Johnson, Sr.

Today, we will attend the Celebration service for my husbands uncle, Layton Johnson, Sr. Thank you for your continued prayers and support. I chose today's picture because Uncle Layton loved the water and in earlier years owned a vacation home on the bay.

I will try to catch up with each of you. Please forgive me for not visiting regularly the past few days. I miss each of you and the encouragement you provide. I do feel the prayers and I praise GOD for the strength, comfort, and peace they provide.

Amazed by HIS grace,

Sounds like a time it is important for you to be away from the computer and with others who are grieving. They need the spirit of Jesus who resides within you. Go to bless and to be blessed.

It's always hard for us who are left behind...May God's comfort cover his family, including you and your hubby! Love to you sister.

I love that it's a celebration service! Even though you will miss him greatly, his life should be celebrated.

You have a lot going on with the upcoming wedding. Don't worry about not getting around to everybody right now. Your family needs you.

I've been meaning to ask you...what was the verdict on the hair extensions?

Love and Hugs, Leslie

I am far behind in keeping up with everyone's blogs. I truly enjoy yours and am sorry to hear of your loss. I see that it is a celebration service so I know that you are comforted knowing he is with Jesus now. My prayers are with you as you continue life here without him.

Andrea, I have missed your updates and our visits. You and Doug and your family have remained in my prayers.

So much in your lives right now!

I think back to this time 2 years ago. My husband's step-dad, who in every sense of the word became like a father to him, passed away peacefully with several of his family around him as I sat with my daughter and son-in-law in the office of the bakery where they were selecting their wedding cake.

My thoughts are with you and give Doug a big hug from me.

Love you.
