For those who have not yet heard, Dr. Platt passed away this morning. I will post the plans for the visitation and funeral on this blog as soon as they are finalized. The family appreciates your prayers for Walter and for them during this painful, yet glorious time. I say painful because losing a loved one or close friend is not an easy thing; but it is a glorious time because our friend has realized the promise of eternal life that has been promised to him by God through His Son, Jesus Christ. Put another way, we grieve for our loss while at the same time rejoicing in his gain.
May his soul and the souls of all the departed, by the mercy of God, rest in peace.
