Baptizing Kaden

Mrs.R and I drove to Brussels today.  Brussels, Ontario, that is for our grandson’s baptism. The pastor of the church added the baptism to the regular Sunday services using it as a part of her sermon and teaching for the day.

The  services were nice, a United church setting, and admittedly one that I am not at all familiar with but we were made to feel quite comfortable in the church, again.  This was the same church that Josh and Katie (Kaden’s parents) were married in back in July 2006.

It was a hurried day for us, although we made sure to go back to the great lunch provided by Katie’s parents and family at their home in Brussels.  Always pleasant and ever the gracious hosts it was an enjoyable although quick lunch and chat.  It was nice to see the pastor stop by after the services to join the gathering of family and friends for a short stay, as well.

Old Man Jeremy

‘Twas his time to leave this place,
to pass into the silence, full of grace.

He struggled and fought,
but this day no more life could be bought.

The grim reaper had come calling,
and his timing was nothing short of appalling.

His brethren made no fuss,
to them this is life and so must pass as thus.

At the bridge he now waits,
with family and friends before the pearly gates.

Our Jeremy left us today to make his way to the Rainbow Bridge.  He was the oldest and will be sorely missed.  Jeremy is survived by his brother Gordon as well as Teetu and Bruiser from the older home.  The rest of the boys paid their respects as is our custom. There have been so many … so quickly recently that I can say no more.

The prose above is for Jeremy, as written … in the here and now.

Jeremy - RIP
