Larry is healed

Postby Anji » Mon Aug 06, 2012 8:20 am

Larry won his battle with this disease last night at 7:50 pm. He finished the race with grace, strength and dignity and is now whole, healed and with his Saviour. He was surrounded by friends and family, and his actual moment of death was beautiful. I will have to share that story sometime. We were able to keep him comfortable and up until about seven hours before his death, he was responsive and talking to me. God didn't let him linger and that was a huge answered prayer.

Please pray for our children, and me, as we go through these next few days.

You have been an amazing caregiver to Larry and your whole family. I can't imagine the pain you all feel right now. I am grateful that you have such a strong faith and that you know that your being without Larry is only temporary.

Keeping you all in prayers.
