Christ-followers never have to say “Good-by”

I have mixed feelings today as I am saddened to hear about the passing of a long time friend and colleague, Dr. Brian Moore. He helped me navigate some very difficult times in my life shortly after coming to South Bend. He was best man at our wedding, and he has been a friend and source of counsel throughout my years as a pastor.
As we both neared retirement, I was looking forward to being able to spend some time with him roaming those Maryland hills and battlefields that he often talked about. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to do that; but in his books and Facebook posts, he reminded us that physical death is not the last word, and that those who follow Jesus will one day be reunited.
Even though ALS is a devastating disease and robs a person one day at a time of his/her physical abilities, it did not dampen Brian’s spirit and his desire to tell others about Jesus’ love. Well done! We’ll miss you until we meet again, and you can show us some of your great discoveries in Heaven!
Our love and prayers go with Amanda and the rest of the family.
