The Loss of Another Dear Friend

Another dear friend has gone home to be with the Lord sometime in the middle of the night. Graeff Galebach had a mild stroke a week or so ago and then cancer was found throughout his body, especially in his lungs and liver. He was in his early 80's. His daughter posted on her Facebook that he had passed. Saturday evening after we unloaded the car we went to the Kaiser hospital in Roseville to see him. And Gerry stopped yesterday morning after bible study. Am thankful we did that.

Graeff had a beautiful voice and especially enjoyed singing the old standards of the church - Amazing Grace, The Old Rugged Cross, The Love of God, etc.

He will be sorely missed. He is now home with our Lord. We who have been left behind rejoice in that fact. No more pain, no more suffering. And we know that when our time on earth is done and God calls us home, we will be together again.

My thoughts and prayers today are with Nancy, his wife of 56 years and his children Alan and Ann and grandchildren.
