Will Brownie and those who are believers please pray for him.
Lord and Loving heavenly Father,
We lift our Paul before you. Please grant him healing and life,To your glory and in the  Jesus Name. Amen.

Hi Sassy

Sorry to hear your sad news.

My thoughts are with you.

TV

Thank you Trent...
It was a poignant day yesterday the anniversary of my friends death she was killed in a car accident.
My eldest sister said she would let me know any new changes in his condition. I have two brother-in-laws called Paul, one whom my sister Karen has separated from and my sister Alison whose partner Paul is in hospital.

My brother who died would have been 54 today. My friend was 21 when she died. I met my husband through her in Ibiza it is 22 years ago and it seemed only yesterday she left to go swimming with her partner who were staying with me.
It is funny how all this with Paul has brought it all back so clearly.

I believe that God has a plan for everyone and their lives. I know that loving someone is the most important thing in life.
Thanks (((TRENT))) it is at times like this we see those who really do care about what others are going through.
I am not concerned about my own feelings. I am concerned for my little sister, Paul and the whole family on both sides.


King James Bible
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

I so look forward to that time for everyone. A time when all pain and hurt ceases.  Praise the Lord, that the time will come.

My brother-in-law Bill just called to let me know Paul has passed away.
Thanks Trent for being there for my family and I. Much love.

The funeral is the 13th May he is coming home from Wales to England to be cremated to the place where they first use to live.

You cannot pray when asked you wait till he is dead. But unlike Christ, you cannot raise him.
Then you get in early for his send off...

Go figure...Why not throw a party. Would be more sincere.

Sass I do not know who you are talking to but if it is me, I'm sorry if I have given offence.  My first reply on this thread was made as soon as I saw it but I've already told you that.  I thought today was the 13th, in fact I just wrote a cheque to that effect.  I'm sorry I was wrong about that but you must realise it's a mistake, nothing deliberate.  My sympathies are with your family, Sassy, it's a very sad occurrence for you all.

Hi Sass, I have the correct date today and am posting just after 8am (not a good idea for me to post in the middle of the night when I get the date confused), so there is no doubt the funeral is today.  I am thinking of you all Sassy, a very sad occurrence for the whole family but I  hope there will be some things that you can share with us.  I presume all the family will be there and that is always a positive thing.
Anyway ignore me if you want but I wanted you to know that I am thinking of you today.  God bless to you and yours.

Life swift to end and without definition in between outside that of love and God.
Rest in peace Paul a kind and sincere funny man.
God makes us all individual but some he makes that little bit extra special.
You were definitely that and made A very happy. Rest in Peace till Christ comes
into his Kingdom and we all meet again.

I thank God, he sent his Son and has made known how much he loves us.
It is so wonderful to have him looking out for us.
