Gone, but not forgotten . . .

Our friend from work, Jason, passed away on Sunday morning after a 2 year battle with metastacized melanoma. He was the kind of young man that everyone liked and he always had a warm greeting and a bright smile for anyone that crossed his path. He always exhibited a "can do" attitude, even when he was feeling unwell.

Visitation was tonight in Nashville and the funeral itself is tomorrow in his hometown. His beautiful girlfriend, Tish, greeted everyone this evening with a smile and a hug. Although she is my co-worker, I don't know her well, but I can tell that she has been a tower of strength for Jason. I pray for God's comfort and peace to envelop her, especially through these next few days, weeks, months.

We were all blessed to know Jason and will miss him. But I rejoice that he is now completely healed, completely pain-free, and in the presence of our Father.
