    I sit here with a heavy heart. I had the privilage to see The Greenes many, many times. I know hearts are broken, but in II Corinthians 12:9 the Lord said unto Paul, “My grace is sufficient for me”. The heavenly choir has a beautiful voice joing them. My prayers go out to Taranda, the children and the entire Greene family.
