Losing our parents can be a traumatic experience. For this reason, I am keeping my cousins Mario, Lisa, Daryl, and Rico in my prayers and my thoughts at such a time as this – the death of their mother.
Losing another family member while we are still grieving the loss of our own child really can upset some of our souls. Unfortunately, many of us will experience multiple losses on numerous occasions—some deaths will be far apart and some will be very close to each other. Either way, whenever we lose our loved ones that will be when we absolutely should lean on and trust in our Comforter.
I am sure that all parents expect their children to outlive them. I know I expected that, but God had a different plan for my oldest son. He just turned forty-five on Sunday, April 30th. On Tuesday evening, May 2nd, he went home to be with the Lord.
This blog entry is a tribute to my brother, Clarence William Drayton, Jr., who went home to be with the Lord on January 18, 2013.
