A Great Loss...

I am just home from North Carolina, where I drove my mother and daughter to the funeral
of a dear and sweet cousin, Robert Eldon Edwards.
This Christian man fought a long, valiant fight against cancer. He had an army career that spanned 21 years.

Many of his comrades attended and stood vigil in the rain to pay their respects.
He was buried with full military honors.

This church and cemetary are adjacent to his homestead.

Our prayers go out to his sweet wife, children, and grandchildren.
He will be missed by many, but we wouldn't wish him back...he sits at the feet of Jesus!

Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.Psalm 116:15
