Hebrews 11

King James Version

11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

For by it the elders obtained a good report.

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.

    Louise, Bill, Joe as well as the entire Pennewell family, you’re in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. There is never a “right time” to lose a loved one, but so near the holiday’s, it begin’s your year of “first’s” without someone you love, at the hardest time. Please know old friends are praying for, and with you. My deepest condolences to all of you.
    With love,
    Julia (Gregg) Ingrassia
