My Father Has Gone To Be With the Lord - Tim Challies

Yesterday morning my father despatched a fast electronic mail to ask if he might name me later that eveninghe wished to listen to about my experiences in Africa, Im positive. Yesterday afternoon my sister made a tearful cellphone name to say that she had discovered him unconscious and unresponsive. There was nothing she or the paramedics might dohe had very out of the blue and unexpectedly gone to be with the Lord.

This has come as a horrible shock to all the familymy mom, the 5 children and their spouses, and the sixteen grandkids. There was no warning and no preparationjust the sudden, jarring information that he’s gone.

We take comfortthe truest, deepest sort of comfortin figuring out that he’s with the Savior he met so way back and faithfully adopted for thus a few years. We miss him already, however know the grief of parting will quickly sufficient get replaced by the enjoyment of reunion. I’m on my approach all the way down to the Chattanooga space to spend time with my household and would, after all, respect your prayers on this time.

(For many who knew him, please keep tuned or get in contact with a member of the family to study funeral preparations.)
