He Was Friend (Eulogy/ Epitaph)


He was a Friend

Like Jonathan to me;

A faithful friend,

Who stood like a tree.


A man of faith

Like Wigglesworth,

Full of strength,

Full of worth.



A man of integrity,

A man of his word,

A man of purity,

A man of the Word.



 A man of Action

Motivated by love

Moved by compassion

Ruled from above.


He was a friend

Who spoke his mind

To friend or fiend

What was God’s mind.


He was a man exemplary

Who stood like a giant

Comes near with empathy

And very adamant.


He was a friend

Closer than a brother

Who fought to the end

In good and bad weather.


He was a friend

A man of God

Who did not pretend

When sharing the Word.


Now absent in the body

He is in heaven

With Jesus –  his buddy

In blissful haven.



He leaves a legacy

Of Stirling quality

Challenging you and me

To be beacons of the Almighty.

My friend has gone

To be with Jesus – His Lord and Savior

He rests in His bosom – a safe haven.

But the question remains

To you and me:

 Where would we be

Should we called today?


2Cor5:8We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. NIV

1Th:4:16: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

1Th:4:17: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.


Phil3:20 20But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,

Ps1:5-6 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
       nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

 6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
       but the way of the wicked will perish.
