I am in shock,

but isn't that how we feel when the unexpected happens.

My daughter in law's uncle. My friend’s baby brother.

Younger than I

Suddenly passes away


is now in the Presence of the LORD.

A man of GOD

who wore his faith for everyone to see

through his great smile

through his actions

through his love for his wife and children

and all who would be in his presence.

And now


he is gone.

We know he is with the LORD,

but oh the shock of his departure is beyond words.

But GOD is the GOD of comfort.

But GOD is GOD with plans that our beyond our comprehension.

We may not like HIS ways,

but if HE so loves us beyond our comprehension

we know that HE will never let us down

as HE comes alongside us

to fill our hearts

especially those broken places

with more of HIM

especially through times of

shock & grief~ "Do you not know? Have you not heard?

The LORD is the everlasting GOD, the CREATOR of the ends of the earth.

HE will not grow tired or weary, and HIS understanding no one can fathom.

HE gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;

but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,

they will walk and not be faint" (Isaiah 40:18-31).

So Bobby,

Even know we know you are where you knew you would be one day,

with your


it hurts to see you go so much sooner than we could ever imagine.

Will you pray for his precious wife, daughter, son and siblings through this time of grief.

What are your thoughts & prayers?
