A Little Break

My nephew passed peacefully into the arms of Jesus this morning, at home, with his wife and parents at his side.
I'll be taking a break for a week or so. Thank you to all who prayed. So many prayers were answered in the way we wished - a quick end to his pain, the ability to be at home until the end, and many more small details that we are thankful for. Continue to pray for his wife and two small boys, and his parents and siblings, as well as the extended family.

"Underneath are the everlasting arms."


  1. I'm so sorry Lorrie for your loss. God's peace to all of you.

  2. Oh dear Lorrie, I just got on for a minute and saw your post. Your nephew is truly at peace in the loving arms of our Savior. His entire family will continue to be in our prayers. I pray that God will lift them up and they will know peace as well. God Bless you.

    big hugs,

  3. I was thinking about you and your nephew a few times over the past few days..............

    Precious in the sight of the Lord are the death of his saints.

    Wishing you His undergirding at this precious and hard time.


  4. Our Sympathy and Prays are with you at this sad time in your families life.

  10. Hi Lorrie...
    I am so sorry that Colin has passed...but happy knowing prayers were answered and that he is now in a restful place without pain.

  11. Dear Lorrie, I know I only recently came upon your blog, and you don't even know me, but I'm sending my prayers to you and your family at this most difficult time. God bless you all.

  12. Blessings to Melissa and your family...

  13. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Peace for Colin and Melissa and her little boys. The strength of her faith amazes me.

  14. Our thoughts and prayers are with you you join with family in 'remembering Colin'.

  15. I didn't write before, but I've been keeping Colin and all his family in my prayers, along with our daughters' nanny and her three daughters (aged 14, 11 and 4)- her husband, Jean-Luc, suddenly died of a heart attack on Sunday and we went to his funeral today. Could you please keep them in your prayers too ?
    Who knows, maybe these two good men met up there in Heaven...
    Keeping everybody in my thoughts and prayers. Lots of hugs.

  16. Sorry to hear about this. Our times are certainly in His Hands--I think about this daily.

  17. I am so sorry...
