Well, I just arrived home from a dear friend’s house. His father passed away about 7:30pm yesterday. Anyone who knows Albert Ray Senior has been blessed. He was a veteran. Thank you for your service Brother Ray! He is a wonderful husband. He is a wonderful Daddy. He is a wonderful Christian.
I know that I will miss him deeply. His family will miss him even more. Every time I walked in the door he would have a gracious smile and a warm handshake. When his health began to fail my family and I purchased an electric throw for him to use as he sat in his chair. He warmed our hearts for many years and we wanted to warm him in return.
Yes, the tears of sadness and pain stream down our cheeks; especially Albert’s family. We all have the calm assurance that Albert Ray is home with Jesus this evening. He longed to see his dear wife Helen and many others who have gone on before him. He most importantly wanted to see Jesus who loved him and gave Himself for Albert.
As I sit here and weep for my loss of a dear, sweet friend I must say, “Praise God! Praise God! Praise God!” If you knew Albert then you know how often he said that and meant it.
Thank you Brother Albert Ray for your love and your outstanding Christian testimony. It will not be long and we will all have the reunion we are looking for .
See you at the House my Brother!
