He’s gone on ahead of us!
Our good friend, Shawn Hurst, went on to be with Jesus on Thursday morning, January 4, 2018. Shawn has been an inspiration to us all of at CCO who have gotten to know him over so many years. (I wrote about him a couple of months ago.) He could light up a room with his loud, crazy laughter and his quick-witted banter.
He fought the good fight. He went through a myriad of health issues over the last couple of years. Now he’s been set free from all his pain and suffering.
My wife Sandy, and co-worker Jeremy, were so faithful to visit Shawn often. And all of us who visited him came away being blessed. We are all better folks from knowing him. He showed us all how to care and show compassion towards so many who would be considered the least. As William Barclay writes, “As the common saying has it, “It is the poor who help the poor,” because they know what poverty is like.”
Thanks Shawn for being our friends. We’ll look forward to seeing you when it’s “our time.”
