For some reason, I have a specific memory of the day when Gerald and Faye brought Johnny home from the hospital in 1969. Jerry was very excited about his new brother! I was reacquainted with Johnny the last couple of years through Facebook, and comforted to know from his posts that he loved Christ. In Ephesians 2:8-9, Paul said "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast." Prayers and hugs for Gerald, Faye, Jerry, Susan and Sonia. Mark and Jacki Langworthy
