I wanted to share a sweet email from my cousin Scott that he wrote about Dad when this first happened. I love it and I love you Scott.
Blessings on your day today. Let us all have open eyes for ways to glorify and serve our good God today!
Dear Aunt Jan, and all,
Kicked, blasted, burned, and now run over, Uncle Burl is one of the
truly tough guys. But we know that angels attend him with great
diligence. We know what powers him. We know the source of his
tenacious grip on life, the source of life itself. He is a man with
purpose and drive who inspires the rest of us to strive to do better.
I know he has been an inspiration to me nearly all my life. Now that
he has been forced to rest up a bit, it's a good time to contemplate
these things. I love Uncle Burl, and I want him to get well soon. I
wouldn't like to think that I might never get to see him again, or
hear his laugh, or sing with him a song of faith and praise. I pray
that God will want what we want in this regard, and I trust he does.
In Jesus' name, dear Lord, let it be! Amen.
I love you all.
