Update from Barb Payne

September 13, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

My wonderful husband of 56 years, Ray Payne, went to heaven to be with his Lord and Savior on September 2nd, 2012. Family and dear friends have been so supportive, comforting and helpful. My four daughters, though deeply grieving themselves, have surrounded me with love. They were even able to sing at the funeral, “‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus”, one of the hymns they sang to him when he was so sick in the hospital. They left families and jobs to be with us together in Ray’s last days. Their husbands were so very understanding of their need to be here with us.

I will be going for the winter to Lynchburg, VA, where two of my daughters live. I can be reached through our contact page or by mail at:

Please be patient with me as I am just now learning to use the computer!

Someone asked me today how to pray for me: pray for wisdom in making difficult decisions, also for my health needs (ask me sometime and I will give you an “organ recital”) another request would be for my family as they grieve the loss of a wonderful dad, father-in-law, and grandfather.

Thank you all so very much for the enormous outpouring of comforting condolences.
