A Heavenly Reunion Sadly Grows

I am very stunned and saddened to learn of the unexpected passing of my Uncle Albert. He was a wonderful man who was always so good to check on his sister, my Mother, as the struggles of age have challenged them both. Mom treasured her brother Albert and I wish they could have seen each other again. I'm sad for Mom being the last Rinehart sibling left and I am brokenhearted for our Florida family...the loss of both Albert Sr. and his son Albert Wayne would be great in any capacity, but the double loss so close together is so heavy a weight for them all to bear. I pray for strength, peace and comfort for Aunt Carrie and all of the family through the coming days. 
I will continue to find solace in the Rinehart reunion that continues to grow in Heaven. I continue to picture this celestial welcoming committee that now includes my father and sister and now Al Jr., surrounding Uncle Albert as he walks in. Comforting aromas of homemade food waft through the air as does the sweet sound of great and powerful and truly Heaven-sent laughter. 
 Lord, its a beautiful scene. 
RIP Uncle Albert.

An absolutely beautiful sentiment Greg! We just visited him briefly during Albert Wayne's funeral. He had such a sweet twinkle in his eye and had Kay sit right in front of him to reminisce about the working years of Kay's Dad, Hobert Gilpin and him. So very happy that they had that special time together. Our hearts go out to Carrie, Jerry, and the whole family. Blessings for comfort to them all. And we also miss Mona......yes, a grand reunion in heaven!
