I haven't met uncle Jack personally, and it was a sad thought to consider that I only got to see him on his death :(.
We arrived March 30th, and the funeral was done the next day after our arrival. We checked in at a nearby hotel close to their home ad a close drive to their place.
It was the first time for me to meet the Rogers family in TX on this day of bereavement. How I wished I have met them all in the midst of a happy reunion...but God's will is always the best!
On the other hand, - there was a life lost, yet a new life was given! When uncle Jack passed away, his first grandchild was born, - Emily. We never know what are God's plans but Emily is a blessing given ;).
