Today a dear friend passed away. He was taken to the hospital yesterday, unresponsive. He never 'woke' up. The kept him 'alive' on the vent until all his children could come and say goodbye.
He was only 50 years old! Way to young to die. Ten years ago he found a lump on his arm and his chest. He had cancer. A cancer that only effects children. They didnt know how to treat him. So much guessing, experiments.
He lost his battle with life on this earth, but he is rejoicing in heaven! What a glorious sight that must have been as a generous, faithful, passionate, kind, gentle pastor entered heavens gates.
Over the next two days we will celebrate his life. Laugh, cry, Hug, and rejoice for his body is now healed, and he is no longer in pain.
If you are the praying type, he leaves behind a wife, four daughters (age 24 to 15) and one son (age 13).
