Rest in Peace, Eddie

My friend died this morning at around 5:15am.  He has lost his battle with cancer, but won his eternity. He is survived by his wife and 2 daughters, as well as by a loving family of origin, including his twin brother.

He leaves 2 communities on 2 coasts devastated yet grateful for his presence in their lives. He leaves us all wanting to hug our loved ones close and treasure every minute given to us by God.

What a great picture! It really captures the feelings of those who knew him.

Thanks. That's what I thought too. I really wanted to 'do something' to it, but my photo editing software doesn't have what I wanted. But I like the pic.

Dymphna, I'm so sorry for your loss. My prayers for you and your friends family.

Dymphna said...

Thanks, Anne. He really was a wonderful person; had a huge amount of faith. Very inspirational.

Thanks so much.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
