At 11:50 pm, Thursday, July 29th, Clayton Glenn French slipped peacefully into the waiting arms of Jesus, after a thirteen month battle with cancer of the brain stem.
I have been so privileged to pray for him for the past year. The unwaivering faith of his family (especially his mom) have been a beautiful testimony to all!
Please keep this family in your prayers as they face the days ahead without

I will leave the link for 'Clayton's Journal' on the sidebar for awhile, and encourage you to read his mom's touching account of his brief life and homegoing!
Safe in the arms of Jesus
safe on his gentle breast;
There by his love o'ershaded
sweetly my soul shall rest.

Hark 'tis the voice of angels
born in a song to me
Over the fields of glory
over the jasper sea.

Safe in the arms of Jesus...

Jesus my heart's dear refuge
Jesus has died for me.
Firm on the Rock of Ages
ever my trust shall be.

Here let me wait with patience
wait till the night is over;
Wait till I see the morning
break on the golden shore.

Safe in the arms of Jesus...
