Today I had to gaze upon the dead body of a dear brother-in-law who passed away suddenly and unexpectedly from a heart attack. I was joined by his mother, his wife, his sisters and brother, and his son, along with a number of other relatives. We tend to be fairly private in our affairs, so I won't say too much. Now, I mostly have the memories of being with him off and on over the nearly 40 years that I have known him. Among our family pictures hanging on our wall are some of him as a young boy. Later he was very successful in his studies and this led to a long running career as a businessman. With many older parents and other relatives, he was the last person I expected to get The Call about. But so it happens as God gives life and places special people in our lives for a time, but then takes them away according to His eternal plan.
