This has been a very sad week indeed for my family.
On last Friday (Apr 1), my 2nd uncle in California of USA passed away peacefully at home at 8:00 p.m. He was 90 years old.
Then just yesterday (April 5), my 3rd uncle in Birmingham of United Kingdom passed away in the nursing home at 2:55 p.m. He was 80 years old. He contracted Parkinson’s disease 6 years ago, and was last year admitted into the nursing home for better care.
What a coincidence and cruel fact that 2 brothers passed away within such a short time frame of 3 days? We told the wife of the 3rd uncle not to break the news of his elder brother passing away, so he all along did not know.
The only consolation as Christians now we have is that they are now reunited in heaven, no more pain, suffering, tears or sorrows and only eternal joy. We shall reunite one day too when it is time for our passing.
Death is only a temporary separation from this earthly world but not a forever goodbye.
