Molding a lump of clay

Molding a lump of clay
I am a work in progress, molded by my Maker, refined by His fire, shaped with His love. Walk the journey with me.

We love you, Grandpa

Walter Henry Samuel Wright

24 June 1920 - 4 June 2009

John's Dad has been sick for several years, but gone steadily downhill the last few months. John and I decided to come home with the children to see Grandpa while he was still alive, but sadly we were one day too late.

Grandpa Wright died Thursday afternoon, June 4th, in his home in Boston, Lincolnshire, England. He was a lovely, generous man, and is greatly missed.

John and I have struggled with the fact that we didn't get home in time to see him alive, but we are so thankful that we are here now with John's mom, sisters and the rest of the family to mourn Grandpa's death and celebrate the life he lived.

The funeral will be Monday June 15, and we plan to fly back to Uganda on the 21st.

I can't imagine your loss and feeling of not making it in time. Thank you for letting us know. We will be praying for your family.

Vik & John,

Praying for you both and the entire Wright family. I have the cell number you gave me for England so I'll try to call this week sometime.
Take care. Love from Chicago...

This brings tears to my eyes. My dad just passed away last fall, out of state. I was able to be on the phone in his final hours, but not by his bedside. I empathize with you and my prayers are with you as you travel. many many many hugs. I'm also adding this to my following list. hugs again.
