A Time of Sorrow

I write with a very sad and heavy heart tonight. I will write more at a later time.
My father in law, Nelson Madden, 87, has passed away and we are grieving. He has gone to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and for that we are joyous and praising God. It is our earthly pain and loss that is so hard. He was taken by ambulance on Thursday, August 18th and in ICU with pneumonia, kidney failure, low blood pressure, staff infection, and was very septic. He was placed on life support on Friday, August 19th. The doctors informed the family that medically there was no more to be done and all life support was removed on Sunday, August 21 at 5:00 p.m. He passed away peacefully on August 22 at 2:00 a.m. There were 9 of us with him out of his 29 immediate children and grandchildren. We are deeply hurting and feeling such a huge loss for a beautiful, Christian, humble man.  If you will, please pray for our family. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all of you as my friends. I will be back soon to visit more. Thank you again....
