Lucy & Jimmy

While Lucy and Jimmy went back to Shreveport (leaving their rig here) for a wedding of a friend's son, that trip turned into much more than they had expected.  Lucy's uncle (her mother's youngest brother) got a gall stone lodged in his pancreas that got infected and killed him.  Is that bizarre or what?  Well, that's the second death in Lucy's family this summer as you remember that her brother passed away earlier.  Her mother has been grieving so since her son died and has been steadily going down hill with COPD.  The news about her brother was more than she could handle.  Hospice was called and Lucy moved into the bedroom with her mom.  Sunday morning, the LORD took Lucy's mom home to heaven, never to suffer again.  Graveside services were yesterday.  Needless to say, Lucy and Jimmy need your prayers as they go through this valley.  Even with knowing that her mother isn't suffering and she's now with her loved ones, it's hard to adjust to her being gone.  I know that Rick and Wendy are keenly aware of these facts, as we remember to pray for them, also, as he just recently lost his mother.

    In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
  • John 14:3
    And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
