After a relatively short stay in Hospice, my eldest sibling…my sweet brother, and the first of the 5 of us siblings... has died. I am conflicted between happiness for him, for going on to his “new life”...in Heaven...but am also heartbroken for those of us in our family... left behind.
As a wonderful Christian he served his Lord with SINCERE devotion and love through the Baptist Ministry starting at 18 years old.....when he became the youngest Sunday School Superintendent in the history of our Church. He went on to become a Minister and served in that capacity for over 50 years.
He was a truly wonderful brother, I am proud to be his sister, I will miss our phone calls most of all, as we lived thousands of miles apart.
He survived just long enough for all of the family and close friends to say their goodbyes…before he passed....so that was a true blessing to us….I miss him already !
