Sister Shanna Wise’s father, David Hudson, passed away into his heavenly home on Monday, March 6, 2017, at NMMC in Pontotoc at the age of 62. He had been very ill for a long time as he battled several health issues. He had been blessed to come through several near death health issues for the last few years but it was time for deliverance into heaven and be freed from suffering and pain. Please be in prayer for Sister Shanna and other family members as they cope with their sorrow and take care of his affairs.
We never get ready to give up a loved one but we know the Lord gives grace when the time comes. We sorrow not for our loved one but for ourselves because we come to the realization we won’t see their face in this life any more. We must take comfort that when those loved ones closeÂ their eyes in the sleep of death they immediately awake in the presence of the Lord to behold the Savior. Â “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;Â Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.Â For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.” (II Cor. 1:3-5)–March 7, 2017–Elder Larry Wise
