Of all the qualities that God possesses,  love is the most dominant  one. He loved us so much that he gave his only begotten Son so that we may live.  Life is what he purposed, not death. Soon he will swallow up death forever and remove all the things that causes pain and suffering. Until that time may each of you take comfort in him and in each other.

John 3:16
Revelation 21:3-5
Psalms 37:29

So sorry for your loss Renee, Britney and Brandon. I enjoyed learning from Rusty over the many years we worked together at SSC. He was always willing to help out with a question or to teach me how something worked with the seed programs. I pray that the Lord will comfort you during this difficult time.
