Garland Juby 1948-2008
Sadly, my Dad passed away on July 18. While he had been sick for a year and a half, it was still a rather sudden and somewhat unexpected death.
I couldn’t possibly begin to list the many things he taught me, and obviously, being my Dad, he had a profound impact on my life. My mother has been faithful to the end, and sat by his side throughout the last year and a half, including all 76 days my Dad was in ICU. The Lord had me home when my Dad passed away, and so I will be staying close to home for the next couple of months.
Death is part of the curse that Christ came and died for – death will be the final enemy that’s defeated (Revelation 20:14, 21, 4). As my good friend Carl Baugh likes to say, we do not say “Goodbye,” only “See you later.”
Many thanks to the kind folks at the Ottawa Civic hospital (especially ICU), and the kind folks at the Deep River Hospital, who worked so hard for so long.
