Well yesterday I went to a funeral for my uncle Kevin Rockwell. He is my dad's half brother and was only 55. He has been in bad health for quite a long time so it wasn't necessarily a shock but yet you still are never prepared for death no matter when it comes. The day was sad yet a little bit happy for him to leave his body that was so limited here on this earth. Now he is free to do the things he couldn't. Kevin was a brilliant musician and a man of faith. I know that families can be reunited again one day and he will see his wife and 4 kids again. That understanding makes the loss of a loved one that much easier to deal with. Death is a transition to a new life if just for a little while. I am truly thankful that I have the gospel of Jesus Christ that teaches me the eternal prospective of why we are here on this earth. I'll see you later uncle Kevin.
