Earlier today I lost a friend. My girlfriends father Randolf Jones succumbed to the brain cancer. Your prayers are appreciated, and Angela and her family send thanks for the prayers that helped to make his final days here as easy as they were. He passed peacefully and it was a bit of a surprise to all that were there. He smiled at the words of his cousin that was bringing him the watermelon that he was craving.... Then he was gone.
 
God answers prayers... He may not answer in the manner you wish for, but he answers. I have no doubt our prayers were answered.....His pain and suffering could have been far worse and for far longer.
 
I only ask now that you pray for the family that is left behind and struggles to fill the void that is left. That the men there left to deal with the women are given to the wisdom of using the proper words to help ease their troubles, griefs and fears..... Thanks my friends, and may God bless each and every one of you.

So true!  God know best though, even though we may not understand.

So sorry to hear that Cyborg.  My prayers are with that family, and with you!

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your friend and your girlfriend's father, Billy.  It sounds like he passed in a very peaceful state, which is an absolute blessing.

You, your girlfriend, and her family will be in my prayers.

Our prayers are with you, my friend.  You have my sincere condolences.  May he rest in peace, and his family find peace in knowing that he does.

Thanks gents..... She and her family are so very grateful that your prayers were with her family, and that his passing was as easy as it was. He looked at peace when I saw him being wheeled out of the house.... He had a smirk on his face, and some of his last words were about fishing with his father at the creek.... God bless and rest that poor mans soul. I have no doubt he is in a better place. Now we have alot of work to do around the house.... Things he was planning to get around to, and couldn't but wouldn't have any of us do for him. Thanks again my friends, you really have no idea how much your thoughts and prayers mean to all of us. May God bless each and every one of you.

Sorry for being late Billy!
 
I only saw this a few minutes ago while talking to my Mom, checking on her recovery progress.  She could tell from my voice that something was wrong.  When I told her, she immediately put you and your entire G-friend's family into her prayer circle.  She said to thank you and all the OT members that have been praying for her as well.  God bless you all!

That's quite alright bud..... Been late to crash a party a few times myself. Thank you and your mom, my friend, and you and your mom are most welcome for the prayers too. We just buried Randolph a few minutes after 3;30 pm..... The Honor Guard was a fantastic touch, and Taps still pulls tears when I hear it played with Bugle. It was a wonderful ceremony.

There is something about taps on a bugle that just plucks your heart strings!  Sounds like a wonderful ceremony.   May he rest in peace among family and brethren!

 What a bittersweet thing Billy, to have a loved one die in peace surrounded by the love of his family.

 Thoughts and prayers go out to all of you again.
