Thanks for praying…and keep it up.

As most of you have heard, my mother in law, Beverly Haddock, went to be with her loving Lord Jesus on Monday, just hours before Kathy was to leave on a flight to be with her.  The passing was unexpectedly swift, even from the standpoint of the hospice nursing staff, but just on time in the Lord’s plans.  Our whole extended family has gathered in Montana, where we will celebrate her life in a memorial service tomorrow.

I wanted to thank our church family for your prayers and encouraging words as we have begun the experience of this loss.  Beverly’s presence in the family was strong and good–it is hard to imagine carrying on without her gracious presence, and her constant planning to create memory making times.  Yet we know that her desire as the cancer robbed her of the ability to enjoy even the simplist of experiences here was to leave for Heaven, and Jesus honored that request.  Continue to pray for us, that God’s comfort would be real, and that any who knew Beverly but not her Lord might be impressed by her faith one last time and drawn to consider her Savior.
