Today, I am many miles away and wish with all my heart that I could be with my family to lay you to rest Nonoy Rick, but it is not God’s will that I was to be there, perhaps because He knows that one day again we will be together in Heaven. My heart is with our family here and I feel much sorrow and pain for myself as well as my family for the loss of a brother such as you.

Our lives have taken us down different roads, Noy, we have spent many years apart, but you have always been close in my heart and prayers and I have always respected and loved you. Oh what a privilege to spend the last three weeks with you my Brother Rick. It was such a Blessing to see you again and to be brought back together for the final month of your life here on earth.

I am so proud of you Noy. Your life took you in many directions, but you put your pride aside and humbled yourself and came back to God our father. It was great to fellowship with you as we prayed to our Lord and father while I was with you. I write this letter on my Birthday and reflect back on how proud and blessed I was to have you in my life for 44 short years.

Cancer is a terrible disease and it took your body even though you fought hard against it, but it could not take your soul. God has taken that and He has received you with open arms. I can only imagine as you walked into heaven that Jesus pulled his blood stained hands from His robe and began to clap as you entered and spoke, well don’t my good and faithful servant.

As I write this letter, my thoughts reflect on the wonderful words of this song.

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now am found, Was blind, but now I see.

Through many dangers, toils and snares I have already come; It’s grace that brought me safe this far and Grace will lead me home.

My chains are gone, I’ve been set free. My God my Savior has ransomed me. And like a flood his mercy reigns. Unending love, Amazing grace.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years. Bright shining as the sun. We have no less days to sing God’s praise than when we’ve first began.

Yes, Nonoy Rick your chains are gone my brother and you are free! You’re singing His praise today with the voice of an angel. My selfishness wants you back with us today, but I know it would be cruel to bring you back because you are home with our Lord and you are so healthy and happy. No pain or sorrow can touch you and you know nothing but joy and peace.

I’m sure if you were to speak to us today you would say, Oh my dear sweet family and friends, you can’t imagine what it is like and there are no human words to describe the glories of heaven and the face of Jesus. Dear ones, be faithful and serve Him to the end. It’s worth it all! I want you to know and experience the love of Christ in your life, which comes through a personal relationship with Him. He longs for all of you to know Him. Let Him speak to your heart.

Today I have tears of joy for you and your happiness and tears for my loss, but I know that as the miles once again take us apart that you will always be in my heart and memories until I walk through the gates of heaven and you welcome me home with our Lord and savior.

See you later my dear brother,

Your loving sister Inday Reza.
