It is with heavy heart that I write you. Our dear friend, Jimmy Booth, has died this morning. It was sudden while he was out walking the dog on St. Simon's Island this morning. I spoke to Margo who was at the hospital and arranging for her daughter-in-law to come be with her. I ask you to pray for her as she wrestles with this event and makes plans for the next few days. She has asked for us to wait a couple of day before reaching out by email, text or telephone so that she may have some space. You are welcome to send cards.
Pray for Jimmy also. We will miss our brother, and we pray for faith as we commend him to the God who knows and loves him far better than we are able.
Father of all, we pray to you for those we love, but see no longer: Grant them your peace; let light perpetual shine upon them; and, in your loving wisdom and almighty power, work in them the good purpose of your perfect will; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
