Our dear Aunt Carolyn Dawn Hays passed peacefully in her sleep this morning at Briarwood Assisted Living in Allegan, MI. We have so many fond memories of her whimsical joy and zest for life, and her dedication and love for her family and home. Jesus tells us in John 14:2, "In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you." Rest in peace and love, dear Aunt Carolyn, in the arms of Jesus.✨🙏💖🙏✨

Here's a wonderful explanation of Jesus' words to His disciples as told in John 14:2:

"In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you."

In it's essence, this passage shares God's truth through Jesus to his disciples: that our Father's home in heaven is infinite with ample room for us all, as family dwelling in peace and love and light revealed beyond time and space.
