It is with deep regret that I have to inform you that my sister-in-law, Cindy Morris, has died. As Doug notes, everything seemed to be improving Tuesday and Wednesday morning, and then she suffered another seizure.
Here’s what I wrote about 11:30 p.m. last night:
Father God, You have called your daughter Cindy home to be with You tonight, far earlier than my brother or any of us would have liked. In our sorrow, we find solace only in the knowledge that Your Son’s work on the Cross provides her salvation and healing. Doug and Cindy may have only been married 19 months, but in that short time, they came to know You better, as marriage is the sacrament most closely associated with salvation and how You reconcile Your children to You through Jesus. Grant us healing in Your time.
With this, I’m about out of words. Well, save for this: Doug and Cindy always express their love and affection for each other. Would that we always did so with the ones that we love. If you wish to remember Cindy and honor my brother, please be sure to remember to remind someone that you love every day of that fact. I can think of no better tribute.
