Please pray!

We just got the news that Mr. JB's uncle Jack passed away this morning. He was 89 years old and had 10 children (one of which died of cancer a few years back).  His wife passed away 26 years ago.

He told the attendant at his home that he was feeling good today. He closed his eyes and that was it. 

He was one of those people that you thought would live forever.

He had a massive stroke thirteen years ago and lay on the floor for sixteen hours until someone found him.

Let's just say that he was a tough, tough man.

Please pray for his children, his grandchildren and his surviving siblings.

Uncle Jack, may you rest in peace. Until we meet again.
