We give back to you, O God, our uncle, brother and friend, whom you gave to us. You did not lose him when you gave him to us and we do not lose him when he returns to you.
Your dear Son, Jesus Christ, has taught us that life is eternal and love cannot die, so death is only a horizon and a horizon is only the limit of our sight. Open our eyes to see more clearly and draw us close to you that we may know that we are nearer to our loved ones, who are with you. You have told us that you are preparing a place for us; prepare us also for that happy place, that where you are we may also be always, O dear Lord of life and death.
You'll forever be among these Harts in our hearts.
I will remember the last words of scripture that we shared together just weeks ago:
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. – Matthew 6
We're not worried Uncle. We know that today you are singing praises of joy and peace to our King of Kings and Lord of Lords. We are only praying for God's favor and grace, that we might be a strong tower as you were, a man of faith as you were. Despite your challenges and struggles, you loved the Lord with all your heart, and all your soul, and all your might! You always encouraged, always smiled, always loved! We will remember the example of Christ-like character that you left within our hearts, and we'll be okay.
