    Gus was more than a good friend…he was also family to me. He had a lot of knowledge in which he was always willing to share with me in time of need. We were always there for each other to help when worked needed to be done. I will miss him terrible. Joyce, you are in our hearts and prayers.
    This is a beautiful message in Romans 6:23…For the wages sin pays is death, but the gift God gives is ever lasting life by Christ Jesus.
