Visitors will be required to wear face masks, practice social distancing, and follow directives. Family has requested everyone to dress casually.

Dear family and friends,

Please be advised that I have moved. I received a call from God the other day and he informed me that my new home was complete.

Well my new home is finished and what a sight to behold. It is located in behind the beautiful Pearly Gates, of course you know the streets are paved with gold. Trees of fruit grace my garden, and I can walk and talk with my Master without pain.

Here there is peace, joy, and happiness, and I can dine at the Masters table and listen to the heavenly choir, and best of all, my Heavenly Father is here in his glory.

I could go on about my new home, but instead I am going to pray that you get to move here yourself someday. Before I say goodbye, let me give you my new address: Heavenly Circle, God’s Town, Heaven.

Love to all, Bud”

My prayers and thoughts are with Ruth and the family of Bud McKinney tonight as I first viewed his obit. By the sound of his letter, I believe that we should be celebrating his homegoing.
