I have finished my course

I have fought a good fight I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteusness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

Do thy diligence to come shortly unto me:

This evening Josephine Elizabeth Bennion, passed from this earthly existance. Her passing was sweet and peacefull. Many tears have been shed already, but the peace that accompanied her in life has remained here with us. Her life was so beautiful and so was her death.
I need to go now but, I will try to update more information later. For now know that we are ok. We are sad to be separated from our little girl, however we know that she will always be our little angel.

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.
Jonathan Bennion

Clara and family,
My heart, thoghts and prayers go out to you and your family. Take pride in knowing that your beautiful little girl is now one of God's angels. I know that pain is difficult but know that you have many that love you and will help bring you through this. Remember the times you shared with sweet Joshephine and cherish it, Earth will be a little darker and heaven a whole lot brighter. I know the days will feel like they will never end but trust me it does get easier, and for that is the Lords stregnth helping us pick up the pieces. May God bless you all at your time of loss and guide you through this difficult time. If you ever need anyone to talk to, I am here. I have been in your shoes and I know your pain, please don't hesitate !! God bless you all
