Heaven Has A New Member

My Uncle Stevie went to be with our Lord last night. Please pray for our family. My Aunt Pam and Tyler lost their husband and father. My Dad and Aunt Jennifer lost their brother. My Papaw lost a son. We lost an uncle. A great, wonderful man he was.

He was in a motorcycle accident. It was on a road where you have to lean the bike left and right to go with the turns. I'm not sure exactly what happened (Dad told me but his voice was shakey and I was trying to keep from crying with him on the phone), but he went off the bike and died instantly. The EMT was there within 60 seconds and he was already gone. All deaths are hard, but for some reason the unexpected ones seems a little harder to grasp.

Adam & I were just talking about him the other day. My littlest sister was scared of him when she was little. He'd walk into a room and she'd flip out and run to Liz or Dad. When Logen met him, he instantly feel in love with him. I have some very cute pictures of Logen & Uncle Stevie together- many from my oldest sister's wedding where they become good buddies.

We are heading down to be with my family tonight. The funeral in Monday. Please, I ask that you keep us all in your prayers. The entire family needs to lifted in prayers.

He was just so young and in great health, we never would have expected it. Infact, last night after I had several missed calls and texts from various family members (I was studying) I honestly thought something had happened to my Papaw.

Hugs Blog Family. Tell the people in your life that you love them, and go do it now b/c in 10 minutes might be to late.
I love you dear friends.
