Kind Words



John McBride passed away around eight pm Monday, October 25th. He stepped into the River Jordan and let his soul drift away while surrounded by family and friends singing to him. Even though he had cancer of both the liver and pancreas, he was fortunate to be able to enjoy a reasonable quality of life life right until the last twenty-four hours, spending quality time with friends and family, and even enjoying outdoor activities such as bicycling and croquet.

In the end, it all went so incredibly fast, partly, I am sure, because he was ready to go. Please remember him with the fondness he so deserves, and remember his wife Val and children, Andre, Michelle and Christine in your prayers, for their suffering is not yet over, while his is.
