An Unexpected Day

In Honor and Memory of Mr. Gene Wheeler (44) who so unexpectedly passed away today while enjoying time at the lake with his family. A fine Christian man, a husband and father, a Deacon, Sunday School teacher, a friend and a man who would do anything for our church and for God's Kingdom, never looking for credit to himself. I'm sorry he is gone from our church family, but know that he is with God. Please be in prayer for his wife and daughters as well as the rest of their family. See you soon, Mr. Gene, and thanks for helping me pick out the right battery for the church van that day and stopping me from hooking the red to the black. Otherwise, I might have beaten you home.

Sorry to hear that.
Although I am not religious myself, I do hope that he would enjoy his Eternal Life somewhere happily.

I'll say a prayer for the family.

You really are such a good writer, Jimmy. I like your succinctness and your understated humor.

I was looking for a dose of reality today and reading of your friend who died in such normal circumstances, reminds me that life is precious no matter where you are living.
