The Death of My Brother David

The past couple of weeks have been particularly sad for me and my family.  My dear brother David died suddenly and unexpectedly just under two weeks ago.  He was only 38.  I have just returned from attending his funeral in the UK.  David was buried in Bedford at a woodland burial ground nearby.  It was raining hard and we all got soaked, which only added to the sense of tragedy.  

Long time readers of this blog will know my views on death.  It is a great enemy that only comes to rob us of life and of those we love.  Death is no friend of the Christian.  Nevertheless, for the Christian there is always hope.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord,
and let light perpetual shine upon him.
