My heart hurts for Lea this morning. Lea’s mom, Evelyn, passed away early this morning. While her death makes us sad, we’re also excited that she has obtained the goal for which she lived … eternal life with her Heavenly Father.
One of the many blessings that has come from marrying Lea has been getting to be a part of her wonderful family. I could not have asked for a better mother-in-law. Lea’s mom was as good as gold. She set a wonderful example to Lea and I of what a healthy marriage was supposed to look like. She loved her family, her husband and she especially loved her God. It was obvious to those who knew her, that her family was the apple of her eye and that God was the King of her life.
This weekend as we gather for Evelyn’s funeral service, I will have the honor to speak about her life… a life lived well. She’s made it easy for me because of the way she lived.
