I met this sweet man 7 years ago and I feel so blessed to have gotten to spend time with him. We loved each other and did so many wonderful and fun things together. I will miss you dearly but I will see you again one day.

You were such a kind, loving, creative, man. You were a master of many trades and had such a love for your family and friends.

I will never ever forget you.
Rest well my sweetheart.

Such a gentle spirit. He will be missed for a brief moment, before we are reunited with our brothers and sisters in Christ. Absent from the body, present with the Lord.

2 Corinthians 5

New Bodies

5 For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. 2 We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing. 3 For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies.[a] 4 While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but its not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life. 5 God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit.

6 So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord. 7 For we live by believing and not by seeing. 8 Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord.
