We lost a good man today!

Kevin's Uncle Wayne passed away quietly in his sleep this morning. He was a good man who will be missed by all. Wayne was my MIL's younger brother, one of four. He is the first sibling of seven in that family to pass on. Fern (MIL) and Wayne were very close. He used to take her out on the Missouri River in his boat to fish. She remembers those days when they were both so happy. Nothing either one of them loved more than fishing on the river. Wayne also loved to garden. In fact, he was working in his garden yesterday. We spent time with Fern today, then I went on to spend some time with Wayne's widow, Joan. Cathryn took a picture of him, Fern and their brother Dean at Fern's birthday party at the beginning of this month.
He is the one on the left, MIL in the middle and brother Dean on the right. My Kevin has his back to the camera. 
We sure will miss Uncle Wayne. Please say a prayer for his family. This was very unexpected, so they need prayer and support. Thanks.

I'm so sorry for your family's loss, Winona. His family (including y'all) will definitely be in my prayers. I'm glad there are happy, loving memories to share and bring comfort. Hugs. :)

I'm sorry for this loss. Those unexpected ones are so very hard....but then, after awhile, we realize that it's wonderful for that person as he didn't have to suffer with some long-drawn-out terminal illness. My mom died a long, drawn-out death and I have always wished she might have gone peacefully in her sleep. It would have shocked us, but.....we'd not have had to watch her suffer and waste away over time. Prayers for your family.

I am so sorry for your loss, Winona and Kevin. It's always so hard to lose a loved one, especially when it is unexpected. May our Lord give you comfort and peace, and I'll be keeping your family in my prayers.

Much love,

I am praying for you my friend! I know exactly what you are going through. Funny we are going through it at the same time. I will pray for you and Uncle Wayne's family as I pray for my own Aunt. Love you!

So sorry for your loss, and the unexpected timing, but as someone said, he did not suffer. God called him home before it came to that point. It is a shock to the family, but what better way to enter the kingdom? My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time.
