“Sunday Thoughts”

Yesterday, July 21st, 2018, my wife lost her youngest brother to a long battle with Cancer. Scott Evans was preceded in his loss to us, by his brother, Rick and his Mother, Gene and his Father, Richard.

I never believed we all have an appointed time to die. I know that death is inevitable, but each time I have experienced the death of a friend or family member; it always seems as if they died too soon.

The last time we saw Scott was in 2012. We all made a trip to Chicago for my wife’s sister’s wedding.  He got to hang out with his nieces and nephews and grand-nephew.  I think he really enjoyed himself.  It was a happier time for him.

In the days, weeks, and years that follow; when I remember him–I will remember the time he took me to the cold, rocky coast in Oregon, and took a photo of my wife and I kissing on the shores of the Pacific Ocean.  And, I will remember our time in Chicago and his love for his family.

“Many do not realize that we here must die. For those who realize this, quarrels end.” – Buddha

“No one ever really dies as long as they took the time to leave us with fond memories.”

–Chris Sorensen

    Thank you, for your kind and loving words about Scott. The “what if’s” always seem to want to creep up in our thoughts every time a family member passes. My peacefulness fills my heart knowing part of our family is having a family reunion in our heavenly Father’s kingdom right now, and Scott is experiencing love like never before.
