Oh, When the Saints Go Marching In....

Oh, When the Saints Go Marching In......

We got word this morning that my husband's uncle, who he was very close to, passed away at three this morning.  He fought a good fight.  He had been sick for some time.  

He adored his family, especially his grandchildren.  He treated Roger as a son....especially after Roger's dad passed away.

I just thank God that we were able to see him in July.  His speech was very slurred and he was very weak, but he was at home, sitting on the back deck talking about his fish pond and different varieties of tomatoes.  We enjoyed a very nice visit with him, his wife and grandchildren.  It was always a blessing to visit with him and he always seemed to cherish those visits.

We talked of going to visit him yesterday, but hospice had already been called in and he was not able to communicate.............AND....Sunday's are soooo full.

I keep thinking.....Oh, When the Saints Go Marching In.......I KNOW he has a new body and I KNOW he is in heaven with his brothers, dad and mom and also my dad.

Life is but a vapor.............we have a lot of work to do and time passes by so quickly.

Please remember the family as they lay to rest this precious saint.
