Services for Jenny Ross Bizaillion

There will be a celebration of the life of Jenny Bizaillion tomorrow (Thursday) at 1:00pm at the Richland Hills Church of Christ in Richland Hills, TX. I know there will be a lot of tears that day but Josh assured me that he would provide some comic relief too. Please pray for them as they grieve. I remember the day of my dad's funeral as if it were yesterday (it's been 18 years).

On a slightly different note, I want to give a thank you shout-out to American Airlines. I have become more and more frustrated with them over the years. However, last night they really met my needs. Sheryl and I are going on vacation this weekend...a trip that we've been looking forward to for a LONG time. I called American and they allowed me to split the trip and use the front leg of my trip from Nashville to Dallas tomorrow instead of Friday in order to make it for the funeral. The travel associate was extremely helpful and compassionate about the circumstances. It was a true gift from the Lord. I am so grateful to be going.

Many of you have written privately telling me that you have been praying for the Ross/Bizaillion families. Many of you don't know them at all. I just want to tell you how much that means to me...and in passing that on to them, how much it means to them. (Thanks for the comment yesterday, Jonathan. I'm ready to see you tomorrow.)

Please keep those prayers up. This week will be tough. This year will be tough. Let's don't stop praying for them--they need it now just as much, if not more.

Please let the family know that the Acappella family is praying for and with them in this time of grief. I never knew Jenny, but I met Josh once or twice, and we got to do some concerts with Jonathan. I know she was just as loving, compassionate, and Christ-centered as her brothers, and I know she has left a remarkable legacy. God has blessed you with some great friends!

We'll be praying for you and your family as well.

BST- I have been and will continue to be praying for all of the Ross/Bizaillion families. I pray God's hands of peace and comfort over, tomorrow, and in the days and years to come.

I am hurting so much with the Ross family. My heart hurts with all of them.

I am SO thankful that AA pulled through for you -- I feel certain they owe you! I am thankful you will be able to be with the Ross and Bizaillion family AND get the vacation that I'm sure you both need so much.

Prayers for all.
