Ill find my way through night and day Cause I know I just can’t stay here in heaven… [ Lyrics from: ] Time can bring you down, time can bend your knees Time can break your heart, have you begging please…begging please Beyond the door there’s peace Im sure And I know therell be no more tears in heaven… Would you know my name If I saw you in heaven?

    Dear Family, I wish to express my sympathy for the loss of your loved one. I frequently pass the Midway Travern by the railroad tracks and realized many times we don’t know the faces behind the businesses in our community. Although I did not know Ginny personally I wanted to share the comforting thought from 1Peter 5:7 -God cares for you and realizes the pain of heart that comes from the death of a loved one. May you draw comfort from bible texts like this one and from knowing that others care and are thinking of you at this time.
