            “Brothers and Sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope.

            For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.”

               ~ 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14

            Today Little Koda Bear is with Jesus.
