Rest in Peace in the arms of the LORD

Rest in Peace in the arms of the LORD

2 Corinthians 5:6-8 So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

My Uncle recently passed of small cell carcinoma. He had been battling cancer for a year, and died right before his 51 birthday.
Uncle Hoss was one of 6 children, four other boys and my mother. He left behind a son, a daughter, wife and grandchild.
His death has been profound for my mom, she says that no one can fill the whole in her heart quite like her big brother. It has also made her, and myself included, realize the significance of our relationships with others and that with the LORD. Life is fleeting, and shouldn’t be taken for granted.
As much as it pains the family to have lost their brother, son, uncle and dad, it is comforting know that he is at home in the arms of God.

My Uncle Hoss is pictured above with his daughter, my cousin, Alisha.
