Heaven-Bound! (I hope it's okay to put an exclamation mark after that post title)


It is with mixed emotions that I pass on to you news regarding Wayne's dad . . . He passed away last night at 10:00 p.m. quietly in his sleep. He was 89 years old. He is finally home. It has been a long, lonely journey of nearly 5 years of life on earth without his wife by his side. From the moment she passed away, he has just wanted to follow her into glory. Now he is with her. And he is with Jesus! It's a bittersweet time for us . . .

i am sure it was hard to see him long for her that many years. it is ok for us to be sad even though we know they are happy now.

Oh, Kim...I am so sorry for your loss, even though it is sometimes for the better. It is so difficult to lose a parent. May God comfort you during this time.

Oh Kim, so sorry to hear about your family's loss, but I rejoice with you that he was a man who loved the Lord! Please give our loving regards to Wayne; this can't be easy for him. Can I ask how the boys are dealing with it?
