Sheltered in the arms of God

"I'll Fall asleep...and wake in God's new Heaven...for I'm sheltered safe within the arms of God."
This morning at about 2:20 am Grandpa Hilligoss went to be with Jesus. He had been diagnosed with cancer just a few months ago and was able to get thru the holidays with his family. In Jan he got sicker and was put in the hospital. After seeing much of his family, many prayers going up and doctors trying to help him....God had other plans and decided to take him on with Him. It is a bittersweet feeling, I must confess. I will be posting again and giving some memories. But for now please pray for the family as they go thru the process of preparing for the funeral. Please remember my grandma it has been a long 2 weeks for her and she needs strength to get thru these next few days.
The veiwing is in Anderson, Ind on Wednesday night.
and the funeral Thursday morning.
(not sure all the details)

Thanks for you prayers.
