Home to Heaven
Lee,
my sweet, precious husband,
went home to the Lord on
Saturday, March 22,2008.
His funeral will be Thursday, March 27.

He was a man of God,
a loving husband,
a fantastic father,
and a proud grandfather (Poppy).

He was also a brilliant editor, and video producer
who worked tirelessly for the Lord's Kingdom.

He was an example to many
of how to live a grace-filled

and gracious life.

He was loved by many.

We are heart-broken and miss him terribly.

We rejoice that he is with the Lord hed had loved for many years.
We are grateful that he is now healed!

John 14:1-3
1"Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.
2In my Father's house are many rooms;
if it were not so, I would have told you.

I am going there to prepare a place for you.
3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back
and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
4You know the way to the place where I am going."

Myrna, I was so heartbroken to hear that Lee had passed away over the weekend. What a tremendous loss for everyone who knew him, especially you and your precious family. Lee was a tremendous person and I always wished I could have been around him more. He always brought a smile to my face. I look forward to the day when your entire family will stand together in heaven and see the impact that your lives had on the kingdom for God's glory. What an amazing day that will be. Well done, good and faithful Myrna. May God pour out every comfort on you this week and in the year to come.
All my love,
Amanda

Oh, Myrna ... I am so so sorry for great loss. What an amazing legacy your precious husband has. His work and service for God will have rippling impact on many for years to come.

I am rejoicing with you in his ultimate healing. Knowing he is face to face with his Jesus must bring you much comfort.

Wanted you to know that so wish I could just wrap my arms around you and hug you.

You are a very special lady and I pray that the Lord of all heaven will pour out his grace and peace that passes all understanding in this time.

I am so very thankful that you have a wonderful family to walk beside you as you begin this new path of life.

Oh, what a day it will be when we ALL see Jesus. I'm sure Lee is smiling ear to ear as he beholds Him face to face.

Blessings my friend.

Lots of love and prayers,

Just happened to find you, and I had read earlier today about your husband on the LPM site. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, but am also rejoicing with you that Lee is seeing our Savior's face!!

Praying that God blesses you richly in the days to come and that He brings back memories-perhaps long forgotten memories- that make you smile and laugh.

Myrna, as i write this, my heart is heavy for the loss of Lee, yet grateful for the time you all shared with him, he will be missed so very much. To you, my dear Sister...my heart is with you. You are such an inspiration to me and I love you dearly. I could never have asked for a better husband than Kevin for our daughter, or a better family to love her as you all do. You and I are very fortunate to have such wonderful, Spirit filled children and grandchildren. May Jesus hold your heart especially close to His through these very sad times...Wanda

I am reminded of how it felt for my mom and I nearly 20 yrs ago when my dad passed away...and my prayers will be with you this week.
God used your husband mightily...and how precious that he is with his Savior at this very moment!
But I know how much you are hurting...God bless and be with you in this time of great loss, dear Myrna.

My goodness - I am so far behind. I can't even imagine what it would like to lose your soul mate - I know I will someday, but can't imagine it. I love that you know exactly where he is and that he is enjoying his new home! It is always hardest on those left behind.

 
At March 27, 2008 at 6:49 PM, Blogger Midlife Mom said...

Oh Myrna I thought I'd check in to see if maybe you had had a chance to post something and was totally taken by surprise at Lee's home going! I knew he was having some bad days but didn't realize it was as serious as it was. God's timing is perfect though isn't it? My heart sings for Lee as he is in the perfect place and whole again! My heart breaks for you as I know you will miss him terribly! My prayer is that God will give you the peace and comfort to help you through this. Lee was a great man of God, you should be proud! xoxoxo

I wanted to stop by and let you know that I was thinking about you today. I am currently involved in the "Jesus, The One and Only" study with my church. I missed one session a few weeks ago because of traveling. The woman leading the group allowed me to bring the tape home with the session I missed. I watched it til the end...where I saw Lee's name and pictures of him and the others. It made me think of you, my precious friend, and I just kept asking God to hold on to you so tightly! Sending this with much love and as many hugs as you're willing to take!!!
