“But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.” KJV
Hey Bro – you were the last in our family – the youngest child – the third brother.
But you are the first to enter Eternity. You are the first to walk into Heaven. You are the first to see Jesus face to face – the first to get His full embrace. You are the first to be told “Well done, Jeremy, my good and faithful servant. Well done. You fought the good fight. You ran the good race. You were faithful until the end.” You are the first to experience LIFE in a place without pain and suffering – enjoy! You are the first to be re-united with our grandparents. You are first now. You are first.
Jer – you fought the good fight. Now hold tightly to the eternal life to which God has called you, which you have confessed so well before many witnesses.
You make me so proud to call you my brother Jer. You make me so proud to have known you. Goodbye for today. Goodbye for now. I will see you again soon. I love you Bro.
