Last night we received a call that one of our church members passed away. As I understand it, it was sudden and not expected.
He was one of those people who made you feel welcome, each time you met him. A rare person, indeed.
Every time my family would meet him, he always had a smile, and a warm handshake. When he asked how you were doing, he meant it. He always had a way to bring your spirit up, when you were feeling down. He was always there to lend a helping hand.
He will always have a fond place in my family's mind as being genuine, always ready with a smile and a care in his heart for others.
His name is Bill Pugh. I believe Bill is now in heaven, smiling bigger than ever before and is singing louder and more joyful than we can imagine. I also believe the simple kindness that Bill showed while on this earth will give him a special jewel in his crown.
To all my prayer warrior friends, I know you are already praying for the Pugh family and I thank you for that. If you would like to give Bill's wife, Betty, a few words of encouragement or send a prayer to her, please let me know, either by email or through Facebook and I will make sure she gets them.
God bless and keep you,
