    President Obama and Governor Nixon did an awesome memorial service! They both spoke with true empathy and compassion. They spoke of words of hope and encouragement to those in Missouri & the South who lost family or neighbors, most of their material things and homes and business! By the Grace of God they will be able to have the strength and the fortitude to rebuild and know Love is eternal & gives the desires of the heart to heal and to rebuild! As a team of neighbors and the backing of their government and spiritual leaders they can be lead to a newness of life!
