Memorial Tributes and condolences may be offered by logging onto www.salseranddillard.com . That's why we're always full of courage. Even while we're at home in the body, we're homesick to be with the Master- for we live by faith, not by what we see with our eyes. We live with a joyful confidence, yet at the same time we take delight in the thought of leaving our bodies behind to be at home with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:6-8
