The bibles teaches us that we know that if the earthly tent we live in is torn down, we have a building in heaven that comes from God, an eternal house not built by human hands. Family please know that GOD makes no mistakes. Your dad has been called up and I believe that he has heard our Father in heaven say "Well done my good and faithful servant, Now rest in me" I am praying for comfort that you can only receive from GOD up above at this time. Stay strong.
