Today my nephew, Jantsen Barrett Cope, would have been 22. He was a happy, faith-filled teenager who loved fishing, telling jokes, watching goofy movies, sports, and being with his family. His life ended suddenly of a heart malfunction in 1999 when he was 15. Our thoughts are, of course, with Randy and Pam today. How appropriate that this year, JB's birthday falls on the first Sunday of Advent, a time of hope and anticipation.
