SLICE OF LIFE: Day8/31--Good-byes are Tough!



SLICE OF LIFE: Day 8/31--Saying Good-bye

Today was rainy all day long. With the springing ahead of the clocks, it made it tough to get up for church and Sunday school. However, we had a combined service and that made it easier since it was the late service time we went to today. It was awesome to see everyone at the same time. The music and sermon were inspiring and motivating.

Then later that day I went back to church. This time it was not something I enjoy. One of my friends and fellow Sunday School class member passed away on Friday. The viewing was today. He was such a quiet, easy-going man that was always there for you. His smile and concern were apparent. We stood in line about an hour to get to the front of the line. That is how popular and respected he was.

He will be missed by so many. His place in the class will always be empty in my opinion. I know he is in a better place and is finally at peace. Still, that doesn't help our missing him here. I am just so thankful he knew the Lord and we all know we will be able to see him again! Good-byes are a Slice of Life we don't really like!
