In Loving Memory of Joseph D. Ertter – Who passed away Oct. 21, 2008 at the age of 37.
“God is too wise to be mistaken, too good to be unkind. So when you don’t understand, when you can’t see His plan, when you can’t trace His hand…trust His heart.”
I can’t believe that a whole year has passed by since my brother lost his battle with that UGLY disease cancer. My Mom summed it all up earlier, some days it seems like just yesterday & he was still here & other days it seems like forever ago.
I thank God everyday that we all had time to say our goodbyes. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to lose someone without having the chance to know the inevitable was about to happen and missing the chance to have one last goodbye & I love you before they died.
Life can be way to short, so keep that in mind and have no regrets. Forgiveness can be the greatest gift you give someone else and yourself at the same time. Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice for the forgiveness of your sins and mine. You have been given a great gift and all you have to do is believe and accept it to receive eternal life in Heaven. What a wonderful thing to look forward to!
I know Joe has missed nothing in the past year. He can look down from Heaven and take it all in, with no suffering or pain or earthly burdens to deal with. I look forward to one day hugging him again in Heaven. Thanking God that I had the chance to accept His gift to me and will reap the rewards in Heaven one day soon!
