IN MEMORY and HONOR


 Today I Lost My Uncle Lacy.
He was the sweetest, godliest, and most humble man I've ever known.
Uncle Lacy filled in as a father figure when my sister and I most needed one.
The life of my sister and I was made safer and less chaotic because of my Uncle.
He had the voice of an angel and sang of the love of Christ.
Even in his final days and hours, he sought to share the love of Christ with his caregivers.
However.... Uncle Lacy was ready to go home... home to see his beloved Shirley.
He was most ready to see the Heaven he had read about and the Lord he had sung about.
He was my rock, my comfort, and my guide when the waters of life tried to engulf me.
He pointed me to Christ, the Great Shepard, the Giver of Life, the Answer to my every Need.



I Honor you Lacy W. Shrewsbury.
I have loved you with an everlasting love.
I will miss you!
Until we Meet Again
Your Loving Niece
Jane Ellen

  12. Praying God will wrap His loving arms of comfort around you during this difficult loss. My step dad passed away on September 26th after being ill for several years. We were able to visit him in August (in Utah). I am so thankful to God we got to see him then. Please remember my mom in prayer for comfort.

    ((((Jane))))) hugs to you.

    xoxo...Gloria
