Jess, I'm sorry for your loss. Knowing that one you love is with Jesus doesn't make the pain any less. But sometimes, it can help knowing you will see him again. We'll be praying for you,

(I deleted my last comment bc I realized I said something incorrectly after I posted it- whoops :) )

Oh, Jess. I love this tribute you wrote to him here. It just shows your love for him. And, I love it that you wrote how he cheated at cards. I was tearing up and then read that and started laughing!

Praying for your family.

I know it must be difficult to lose such a special family member - I'll be praying that you all are comforted through the loss. See you Thursday.
