My Dad's employee and friend passed away yesterday. As far as we know, he went peacefully.
His daughter made it home from Ireland in time to spend time with her dad. God truly answered our prayers in an amazing way. She had a very tight plane change in Atlanta, and the airlines did an unheard of thing - they promised to hold the plane until this girl got on board. Later, both airlines she flew fully reimbused all of her ticket costs, completely unasked for, just to do something for the family. Isn't that amazing? God did more than anyone asked for or imagined.
Anyway, Allyn is with God now.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
