Even in the greatest moments of despair, we have hope in Christ. (John 11:25, 26) Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this?

God’s love heals all hearts from the past hurts and makes things all new. Within in His presence, dark turns to light, and hate to love.

Jesus, you are so faithful to man’s heart in all the different seasons of his life. You are a wonder and so precious.

Emmanuel was a beloved son, brother, grandson, uncle, friend, and fellow teammate who will always remain in our hearts.

Visitation will be held on Friday, October 19, 2012, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., at Solid Rock Assembly in Worthington.

Benson Funeral Home in Worthington is in charge of the arrangements.
