Requiescat in Pace

Ian Lawson Van Toch

September 16 1984- August 24, 2007

--joined at the hip to my youngest son for grades 7 through 13, and at intervals between then and now

Therefore they are before the throne of God,
and serve him day and night in his temple;
and he who sits on the throne
will shelter them with his presence.
They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore;
the sun shall not strike them,
nor any scorching heat.
For the Lamb in the midst of the throne
will be their shepherd,
and he will guide them to springs of living water,
and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
Revelation 7: 15-17

Dear CSB--
So very sorry; I heard today from MC. Please tell the family that Ian is in our prayers. Love and condolences to BDB. The 1st anniversary of Layla's death has just passed, and I know the heartsick numbness that fills the space left empty by a friend's death. We are still together, and will be so again.
Love and greetings to you all, from CJ and AC (in exile in MN).
