As a kid, I would go camping with my grandparents Virgil and Nova Jarrett. We would play cards with Earl and Shirley. My prayers and condolences go out to Earl's family.

II Corinthians 4:16-18 16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. May God Bless
