Good bye, Uncle Roy.... ♥

Saturday night my Uncle Roy(Daddy's younger bother), left this earth and went home to be with the Lord for eternity.

Uncle Roy has battled cancer for several years now, and two weeks ago had a really bad heat stroke that he nearly died from. We are very thankful for those two weeks that God gave him back to us for, so we could hug him and tell him we love him one more time before the Lord took him home. Although we miss him terribly, we know that if we believe on the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, we will see Uncle Roy again in heaven for all eternity!!!

"For God so loved the world,
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in Him
should not perish,
but have everlasting life.
For God sent not His Son
into the world to condemn the world;
but that the world through Him might be saved."
(John 3:16-17)

Uncle Roy with his wife, Aunt Rene and youngest grandson, Ryan.

All the Uncles at Christmas last year. I am very thankful that Samuel was able to be there and get to meet Uncle Roy while he was still alive!!!

"I have fought the good fight,
I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith:
Henceforth there is laid up for a crown of righteousness,
which the Lord, the righteous judge,
shall give me on that day:
and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing."
(2 Tim 4:7-8)
