The Long Road Home
Nearly 20 of us Californians begin heading to Texas tomorrow by various means of transportation. Simon had specifically requested certain friends to be present for his Texas services and to be pallbearers. We didn’t think every person would be able to make it due to schedules and finances but it is happening. Calls were made. Donors pitched in. Even tonight, someone facing her own brutal battle with cancer that is unfit to travel bought a last minute ticket for one of Simon’s childhood friends who is out of state. Seriously. People are amazing.
Pray for us. Pray for our kids. Pray for Simon’s family. Pray for Simon’s many friends. So many are grieving and so many are still in shock. Pray for the officiants at the service. Simon requested an explicit gospel message before he was ever ill and again on his deathbed. We already know of multiple people that have committed or recommitted their lives to Christ during this journey. Pray for more souls to learn what it’s like to live with hope.
Thank you for your continued comfort and support.
We’ll see you soon, Texas.
