Said Good-bye To Our Friend...Again!
Last month we flew to Arizona to comfort our friend Toni who had just lost her husband...our friend Max. We spoke at his Arizona service and joined his friends and family who were grieving his passing.
This week our friends flew here to Kansas with Max's ashes to lay him in his resting place...and we had another memorial here this morning. It was bittersweet. Until now it hadn't really seemed final to me. But at the cemetery today it finally hit me. It is always so hard to know that our loved ones are actually going to be placed in the ground. But on the other hand it was a reminder that when we are believers in Jesus Christ, this life is not all there is. We know that Max is in heaven waiting for us to join him there sometime in the future.
So we said our final good-byes here on earth today...Again...but we look forward to our reunion in heaven.
