    My sincerest condolences to June, Steve, Teresa and all the family. May the God of comfort, peace and strength be with each and everyone of you and all who are suffering during this time of great loss.

    I am a Dad and when my children are hurting I want to be with them. Homer is at peace and is comfortable in his eternal home with his Heavenly Father.

    Isaiah 57:1 Good people die, and no one understands or even cares. But when they die, no calamity can hurt them.
    Isaiah 57:2 Those who live good lives find peace and rest in death.

    If Homer was with us who knows what trials and pain he would be suffering but he has found peace and rest with his Lord and our Lord.
