Ariel has been reading the Psalms and playing hymns to his father in hospital over the past 2 weeks.
When his father was very breathless, he asked for this hymn and sang it’s chorus through his oxygen mask…
When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll,
Whatever my lot thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, It is well with my soul….
(Horatio G. Spafford 1873)
It was his last song.
In peace and without pain, Peter Kurilowicz died in his sleep this morning.
He said in his last moments of consciousness 2 days ago – “I am ready to meet my Saviour”.
In our sadness, we’re thankful for the gift of saying goodbye and hearing those words from a 78 year old servant of the Lord.
Thank you for your prayers and support.
May we rest in the word as one of our kids did this week.
