Heaven's gain, earth's loss

Larry Brice, whom I lifted up for prayer back in November, went home this morning after a long and painful bout with cancer. I didn't know him very well myself; we crossed paths from time to time, but since I didn't go to his church, that's all it was. What I do know is the effect he had on other Christian brothers I respect a lot. Doug and Paul both describe him as a mentor and a role model, and they're the sort of Christians I look to as examples.

May the Lord welcome him home where cancer is less than a memory. Guys like Larry are why the Church Triumphant is called that.
