Headed Home

This is my step-dad's brother, Graeme. Jodi and I had the honor of meeting him when my mom and Bruce were married last year. Graeme lives in Australia where he was raised. Just imagine the coolest Australian accent you can muster and then picture Graeme, you got it.....Mate. It was a pleasure to meet him and spend just a little time enjoying his joyful spirit and his great sense of humor.

According to the doctors, Graeme is headed home to heaven in just a few days. Graeme says he knows where he is going and he is ready to go. He is spending his last few days with his wife and kids, and talking with his mom and Bruce over here in the States. He is weak, tired, and ready to go.

It is moments like these when there are about a million things you would like to say.

Graeme, it has been a pleasure to know you. You are a blessing to me and to others. We will miss you and will see you again one day when we will enjoy eternity together. We look forward to coming home too someday.

Do you know where you are headed? Are you ready to go? If you had only a few days left on earth, what would do.....or undo?
