  1. If a man dies, can he live again?
    I will wait all the days of my compulsory service
    Until my relief comes.
    You will call, and I will answer you.
    You will long for the work of your hands.
    ‒ Job 14:14, 15

  8. Brother Guyton will be delighted to see all his beloved family and friends in paradise. He has blazed the trail for pure worship to make sure his family will be together forever. With that big heart full of love, you know he wants everyone to be there. I am just 2 months older than Gaston and ,also, lived in Opelousas ,and Texas. He has left the truth as the most valuable heritage for his entire family. His investment for your precious eternal lives for his joy. There is no greater joy than seeing your children walking in the truth. 3 John 4 May you be comforted that Guyton is as good as alive in Jehovah’s estimation with the miracle of the resurrection promise.
    Love and Prayers,
