Quiet Sorrow

Forgive my silence.

PhilBillPaul’s younger brother passed away very early this morning after being at home in hospice for just over two weeks. He fought a very courageous battle with liver cancer.

Phil is on his way to Texas tomorrow.

Please keep him and the whole family in your prayers.

If you feel compelled to do so, I know he and Granny will read every comment left here…

    There is no easy way to lose someone you love. I’m so sorry that your trip to TX will not be a joyful one. I rejoice for your brother that his pain is at an end and that his eternity has begun, but I know how difficult it is to say goodbye and know that you won’t see him again until Heaven. Please know that you will be lifted up in prayer this week.

    To all of you feeling this loss, praying that you’ll be surrounded by God’s comforting love and filled with the peace that only HE can give. I’m sure the years were too few, but I’m just as sure that the love was great.
