Looks Like…

PopPop and I…this past Christmas

his mansion is almost ready.

He’s been sick for so long, and yet he never complains.

From heart problems resulting in a bypass and pacemaker to cancer and then dementia, he has faced each trial with patience and grace.

A man of few words, but clearly a man of strong faith.

She’s stood by his side for fifty eight years, caring for him like no one else. Even though his memory has faded, he still knows her, his bride.

Please pray that the Lord would ease his pain and make his final days peaceful. Pray that He would comfort my grandmother, my Mama and her siblings as they prepare to say goodbye to their husband and father as only He can.

The passing of a loved one is never fun for those left to mourn, but praise God for the Christian death is not final!

Heaven is waiting for the saved because of the Hope found in Jesus.

Pop Pop only gets to go a little earlier than the rest of us. We’ll join him before too long, and spend eternity together!

“We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.”

2 Corinthians 5:8

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The hospice nurse says that based on the signs he’s showing he will probably go within the week. We will head to Maryland tomorrow after church. Thank you for your prayers!
