To these families who have lost their loved ones, love and prayers are extended: Lee Terese Troth, William Herman Allen, Wanda Turner, James E. Brabham, James D. Fiegler, Marie “Miss Jerry” Pulliam and Margaret Ann Stephens. Depend on Jesus, for he, God’s presence is real and he continually watches over us. Psalm 34:15, says, “The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open for their cry,” and verse 18 says, “He is near to those who are broken hearted.” The question is not where is God, but where isn’t he?
