Not A Nice Day To Us

This day was so strange. My good friend, Lynn, in Ohio emailed me, told me that the father of our late-friend Beth passed away the other day... and that an hour after that, the father of Beth's husband passed away, too. They are both suffering cancer. This afternoon, my dad-in-law were trying to call us while we were in the Church. After we had lunch, my husband called Dad and there was the breaking of another sad news, Uncle Skipper (my mom-in-law's brother) just passed away this morning.
The picture shown was me, my husband and Uncle Skipper during the Cotton's family reunion last August 22nd of this year in Michigan. He was already sick and he knows it. Uncle Skipper was such a loving person. Although he don't know me very much and we had only been together for a few times, but he showed me warmly how welcome I am in the family. My husband is very sad because he was one of his favorite uncle.

May they all find rest in the kingdom of God.
