Death came gently for Richard Whitney yesterday at 6:10p.m. with family at his side. Although he appeared full of energy and cheerful the last time we saw him on a Sunday, he had been under hospice care for some months now. At dinner on Sunday, Dick told his daughter that he thought the time was near, and he was ready to join Georgia.
I have met with family members, and they have requested that we hold the service for Dick this Friday, February 22, at 11a.m. And so that is what we will do.
Rest eternal grant to him, O Lord,
and may light perpetual shine upon him.
God's Peace be with you all,
