A Celebration

7.31.2011

      A celebration is taking place in heaven.

    One of Mr. Savvy's sisters' husband passed away early Saturday morning.

    He was the sweetest Christian man you could have ever known.

    He had been suffering for quite some time, but not any more.

    Now he is in a much better place. We will be celebrating his life on Monday.


                                                      Yes, there is a celebration in heaven.

We will miss you, Ray.

  51. I am so sorry for Mr. Savvy's loss. That is the one thing I hate about getting old is the sadness from loss of loved ones....either from old age or something worse like cancer.
