A great man passed away this morning..........

No, I am not talking about Ted Kennedy. I don't consider him to be great. Didn't care for him while he was alive, so I don't see any need to be hypocritical and pretend that I do now. (Don't get me started on him, that's a whole nother post).

I am speaking of Richard McCulley. This man has had CF his entire life and since I joined the blogging world a little over a year ago, has been battling stage 4 colon cancer. Richard lost his courageous battle with this hideous, hateful disease this morning.

He leaves behind his wife and two wonderful boys. His wife Kori has the most amazing faith. And it is with a heavy heart that I write this post. I am so glad that I got to know him through her blog.

Kori, love you girl. Praying for you. I can see Richard's wonderful smile as he is walking with Jesus around heaven now. No more pain, no more cancer. Only peace and love. God bless both you and the boys in this time of sorrow.

Hi, I'm stopping by from SITS! I just wanted to share some comment love. I'm still fairly new to blogging and to SITS so I'd love for you to stop by my blog if you get a chance! I love to make new friends.

Well, I hope the rest of your week is absolutely amazing!

Many Blessings,

Teresa <><

"No more tears; no more pain..."

I stopped and prayed for his wife and their boys. May God be wrapping them in His peace and love even now.
