The loss of a great guy, a great friend

Psalm 23
The LORD is my shepherd,
I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
He restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.
Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
forever.

Woke up this morning with a shocking and sad news.  My friend from CF, Joash passed away this morning (Malaysia time).  My first thought was, I promised him to find him when I go back to K.L. but I guess I will never have a chance to anymore.  Sad as I am, I must be happy that he is back with the Lord.  Life is short.. Its unexpected.  Its a gift.  Shall miss you my friend.  Say Hi to God for me... 

My condolences to Joash's family.  God Bless!

With a Heavy Heart, to my dear friend Joash:
You are a great friend who encourages and cares for those around you, you will be greatly missed.  You were a great Brother in Christ. Rest in Peace my friend.

I know Ben. Its such a shock. I feel so down whole day. But we all need to cheer up. He is with God. He is in Heaven. We know where he is and we should all be happy. Times like these, we have to question where is our faith at. God bless you man. Stay safe.
