Our Choir Loses a Member Due to Cancer
On Sunday morning, volunteers were asked to go to the home of Chuck, one of our choir members, battling cancer, to sing for him and his family. The meeting time was 2 pm. Those that arrived a little early learned that Chuck had died at 1:35. His wife and children asked the choir members to come inside and sing anyway. 50 members showed up. They filled his bedroom, standing around him lying in his bed, filled the hallway and the living room. Many hymns were sung, and finally the anthem, Majesty and Glory. I wasn't there, but will join the choir tonight as we sing at his celebration service. Chuck will be greatly missed.
