The lane in autumn. October 31, 2014
A gnarly old apple tree.
The good-byes have been said and now we are left to carry on.
Thank you so much for all your kind expressions of sympathy at the passing of my brother last week. It's been a difficult week for us all but we have that eternal and blessed hope of seeing him again.
Following the beautiful and emotional service and reception on Friday, we drove the country highway then along the narrow lane to the rural cemetery for his final resting place. It's a place I will never forget. It was pouring rain and cold but the lingering rusty leaves on the oak trees surrounding the old cemetery and littering the ground gave the spot a warm glow on the dreary day. We stood under big umbrellas and our tears flowed as the rain fell. Oh how we'll miss him.
"For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us." Romans 8:18
Again, thank you and God bless you.
