Our friend Les Dow passed away this
morning. Friday, he didn't feel like eating anymore and by Saturday night
they had trouble getting his medicine down.. Yesterday, the came and took
him to hospice where he held on until his family was around him and took a gasp
and passed over..
Please lift up the spirit of Les.. a loving man with a great
sense of humor and one who so enjoyed the mischievious times of making us
question and then laugh..
I will forever remember talking to Les when Ron passed over...
Les took it as hard as I did and it was a couple of days later when he told me
that he had found a peace with it.. That he was outside in the park trying
to deal with his feelings over Ron's death and an eagle passed overhead..
It was then that Les knew that the spirit of Ron would live on inside us and
that spirits never die...
Oh God, I know that this is true, yet my heart is bleeding
with the pain of saying goodbye... Les is being cremated and there will be
a memorial on Friday. Peg said that the ashes will not be there..
Please lift Les's wonderful family up in prayer, that God will comfort their
hearts and bring the peace of Les's spirit upon them.. The service will be
Friday at 1:00...
Forgive me, as I cannot quit crying right now and I must
sign off.. Please know that I love you all and May God be with all of us...
