As excited as I am to see my family and spend time with everyone, my heart is heavy today. As you probably know from Mommy's blog, the associate pastor of Lakeside passed away on Monday. He was the father of my long time friend Mike who I met in 6th grade when his family first came to our church. We have been great friends since and it breaks my heart to think of how Mike and his family must be feeling. I know that Craig is now with the Lord in a much better place where he doesn't have to feel the pain and sorrow of this world. But please keep his family in your prayers as they try to make it through this holiday season without a father, husband, and granddad.
