Our Friend, Ken, Has Gone To Heaven

I had another post up this morning
but took it down
to post this one instead.
Please pray for Ken's family today.
He is beyond the need of prayer
because I believe he is
fully and wholly healed
now that he is in Heaven.
This is going to be tough time
for his wife, children and
all of his family.
Any and all prayers 
are appreciated.

I will be gone for a few days
but back the first of the week.

Thank you all for your prayers
and support.

Oh Di. I was woken up this morning early and it was a prayer for him. I prayed for peace for him to be home with his Lord.
As you said he was feeling he was ready to go.

I just prayed for his family now.

I am so sorry that Ken has passed away from earthly life. His beautiful family will miss him, but I believe they will find comfort knowing he has seen the face of his Lord and that someday they will all be reunited for eternity in a place without sorrow or tears. Bless you too, Diana, for the friend you are to them.

Praying Ken's dear family will be surrounded by the peace that only Jesus can bring. This is a time of mourning but there will be that glorious day of reunion when all the pain and tears will be no more. May God Bless them and you as well Diana, I'm so sorry you will be without your dear friend but only for a time. Sending you hugs and love.

I am praying for his family, his wife, children, I am so sorry for their loss.

Rose L said...

I hope his family was able to spend those last loving moments with him as it is so helpful in the healing process for them. I know after my husband died, people kept saying that now he was not suffering and was in a better place. I agreed and still do, but it left me feeling regrets (he had been in a comma and I felt unsure as to whether he heard me in those last 5 days).
I am happy they had time to talk and express feelings, hug and hold hands. Even with all that though, there will still be a huge sense of loss.
I hold them in my heart and prayers.

So sorry to hear this, Diana. Sending prayers!

Katie Isabella said...

My dear Diana, I promise that as soon as I hit send, my first of many prayers that will go up for his family. And you are right...to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord, who is our hope and salvation. Ken is well and healed and in the glorious body of Christ as are all of His children who have come to Him.
With love.

Burlap Luxe said...

Oh Diann i Take this time in distance to visit after being away from visit in in longer then I want to mention, to only find a bit of sadness here.
I certainly will send prayers, a family in great need for the comfort of their dad and husband, what a loving looking family with the glow of who they trust in.

Faith in prayer will see this family through.

See you soon, on a happier post, in the mean time I am most certain your love will help your friends through a very emotional time.

Blessings and prayers

Sending prayers! It's always bittersweet! You know one person is completely healed and whole while the family is left to grieve their loss. I've had 2 losses that have torn my heart this past week, sometimes it's hard but I'm so thankful for the Hope we have in Christ!! Blessings, Cindy
