Hello Mffcc Family and Friends,
This message is to inform you of the passing of a long time member of the Haines City community and dear friend Mr. Willie Gene West. He was called home to be with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, early Monday morning , December 9, 2013. We will always remember Mr. West as the neatly dressed well groomed man that stood at the gate of the Haines City Rattlers/NE Rattlers Field. He was always there to greet us with a big old smile, but hardly said a word. Over the years I have enjoyed every moment that the good Lord has allowed me to converse with Mr. West. I respected him greatly in seeing what he and his family has accomplished in life and will really miss that look of joy on his face when I told him that the barbecue would soon be ready. Mr. West lived a long life of ninety years . In looking back at him, you would never imagine that he was of such high age for he looked so young. No wonder he smile so gracefully. He had the opportunity to live a full life way beyond the expectency period of a person. He and Mrs West has managed to raise a fine group of children and secure his family well being successfully.
In a word of support to Mrs. West and the entire family, we want to say that your pain and grief is shared by us all.
Perhaps if it were possible, we could all take a little of it upon ourselves to help shorten the time of your grieving over the lost of your love one. We pray that God stregthen all of you during this time of sadness and quickly let your hearts be filled with the loving memories that have developed in your hearts and minds over all of those years Mr. Willie G. West was here on earth with you.
Remember that God will only put on you no more than you can bare. He does expect each of us to make sure that as individuals to learn,understand, live and obey his word. He wants us to never love anyone or anything more than him. In other words, we still have to prepare ourselves for that glorious day of going home to live in the house of God and as hard as it may seem, remember that God Almighty is second to none. I pray that you all remember these words . The best healing is to praise god when you feel like you just can't make it another day. Accept the power of Christ over times like this and believe that there are no tears in heaven or no crying in glory. Believe that all of God's children will be happy amen. There is no pain and sorrow, no more worrying about tomorrow, there are no tears in heaven for you and me. I believe that Mr. West will see you one day again and you all will have the best family reunion ever. What a happy time it will be. Let God take care of it all for you. There is no need to worry just except that he knows what he is doing. and soon you will smile when you think of Mr. West rather than cry.
I would simply like to say is a family that prays together stay together. Keep on praying, keep on believing in God, and most importantly trust in God with all your heart and soul and never be ashame or afraid to tell the world, that you believe in God. That is a part of the recipe of being blessed and someday experiencing everlasting life. Amen
