June placed her hope in God as she started an unknown future with Moose. Watching Zeke walk towards them, holding Susanna’s family Bible, remained a favorite memory.

Psalm 5:11 KJV

“Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,

From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.

They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.”
Psalm 17:8-10 KJV

Nehemiah 7:3 KJV

Safe Sheep

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.”
John 10:27-29 KJV

Ruth 2:12 KJV
