Comfort in Trials

Psalm 119:50 (ESV)
This is my comfort in my affliction,
    that your promise gives me life.

~ C. Thomas Fawcett ~
Dad with Mr. and Mrs. Fawcett
These are our precious friends, Tom & Euna Lee Fawcett. Mr. Fawcett was a WWII Navy veteran who passed away this morning in New Braunfels.   Mr. Fawcett was "famous" for fixing lawn mowers, building tables, cracking pecans, eating ice cream and singing lots of songs from the 1940's.

Mr. Fawcett always enjoyed telling "sea stories" and picking on the Army or Air Force with Dad (the Marine).  The two of them could go on for hours!  :)  He also enjoyed hearing about Dad's sermons. Almost daily I would read him the entry for the day from The American Patriot's Almanac. He was a patriot and daily wore the flag pin seen in the photo above.

Please pray that the God of all comfort would comfort the Fawcett and Spradling families during their time of grief.
