Let’s not repeat last week

The last week has been sad, depressing, cold, busy, and full of sleepless nights.  It’s one I wouldn’t want to experience again for quite awhile.  We lost a good friend of ours to leukemia less than 36 hours after holding a benefit concert for him.

Eric Fall 2010

Eric VanRaemdonck was a talented musician and artist.  He played a variety of instruments professionally, including drums and guitar.  His artwork may be seen around the world; you can visit his website at http://artisticnature.com/   to see both his paintings and those of his wife.  Eric played drums for years for the praise and worship band at Flushing United Methodist Church.  So it was fitting that we played and sang for our friend’s funeral yesterday. So hard to sing when you’re crying.

Today, Eric is doing well, as we know with confidence that he is in Heaven with his maker.  We are not so well; there’s a deep hole in our life that will take time to heal. 

Let Your healing love
Pour over this place,
Soothe the wounded soul.
Let Your healing love
Pour over this place,
Make Your people whole.

  1. I am so so sorry for the loss of your friend. Words can't really comfort a hurting soul when we lose a loved one. But I hope you know that I will be praying for you and his family that God would wrap His arms around you all. And I hope you accept a hug from me.


  2. Oh Caron I am so sorry for your loss. How good to know he's healthy now and happy with his Lord and Saviour. I pray that knowledge brings great comfort to you and to his family…
