My second uncle passed away on Saturday, the wake service was held yesterday night and the funeral service this morning.

He was 97. He was a faithful believer in the Lord, honouring the Lord in all that he did, including the keeping of his "Sabbath" holy. Before he retired, he ran a business selling noodles. He used to open 7 days a week but was soon convicted that he should keep Sunday a rest day to honour the Lord, regardless of how much business he'd have to forgo being closed on busy Sundays. He honoured God and God is with him.

  1. What a wonderful testimony he had and what a wonderful legacy you have, Pearlie!!!

  2. I am truly sorry he will be missed, but it is a wonderful thing to know this kind of hope for those we love.

  3. Thanks Susan, Missy. It is good to know that he is with the Lord now. Regardless of what interpretation of Scripture on after-death is, I would like to believe that he is now happy to see my late aunt, his wife.

  4. I thought of this verse from Rev 14 when I read about your uncle:

    And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!”

    Celebrating his passing with you Pearlie and praying that the Holy Spirit will comfort all of those who remain.

    Blessings, Bob

  5. Thank you so much Bob, those were kind words and the verse from Rev so fitting. May God bless you richly.
