Passing Of A Young One.....

Our hearts are saddened with the loss of Brad Dodd.
Brad was the 24 year old fiancee' of Tabetha Heffington. Last night Brad passed away without any warning on the way to his Mother's home in Hendersonville. Brad realized he was sick and knew he had to get help. Brad passed away before reaching help.

Tabetha, her family, and of course his family are at a loss. Brad had battled cancer and was a survivor and had gotten clean reports from all of his follow ups. They found out through his autopsy that he had a massive heart attack. His aorta was 75% bocked.

Talking with Tabetha today, she realizes that "You must be ready for that day." Knowing that she is talking about the day that God decides to call us home.

We would like to share these passages with you:

(New American Standard Bible)

John 14:6 Jesus said, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me."

John 14:3 "If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also."

Revelations 21:1ff "Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying "Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes,; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away. And He who sits on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." And he said, "Write, for these words are faithful and true." Then He said to me, "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the ones who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost."

Our hearts are pouring out to the Heffington and Dodd Families.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
