Gone But Not Forgotten

Early Monday morning I received news that a cousin’s life had been cut short  just hours before.

I cannot fathom the amount of grief his family feels at this time.

My heart goes out to them and prayers are sent up hoping to bring them some kind of comfort and a peacefulness that only God can administer.

His work kept him traveling for a major portion of his time, but I understand he was recently able to stop in and visit with his mother and sisters for a few days.

And for that, I know they are eternally grateful.

My own brother, who had not spoken to this cousin in several years, actually had a phone converstation with him the day before my brother went in the hospital.

Our days, hours, moments are not promised, so tell someone you love just how you feel, before it’s too late.

There may not be a tomorrow.

Cousin, you may be gone, but you will never be forgotten!

And family, know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Peace be with you!

    You know that his mom and sisters have to be so thankful for the time they had with him.

  3. I’m so sorry to hear this Becky. You said it exactly right – we have no guarantee that we’ll get a second chance to tell someone we love them. Sending up prayers for you and your family…

  4. Oh my dear friend. I am so sorry to hear of this tragic loss. My prayers are with you and his family. It is sometimes uncomprehendable that someone will not be there tommorrow. I am sorry you and your loved ones are going through this. Please know that I will keep you close to my heart and in my daily prayers.

  5. So sorry to hear about your cousin. I’ll be thinking of you and the family. You are so wise that we have no idea how finite our time here might be. It’s far too short to hold a grudge.
