Gone home to be with his Daddy God


Bert Nehemiah Brumfield
1915-2008

Today around 2:30 Paw Paw walked into the arms of our Father.
He went peacefully.
He is now walking the gold streets arm n arm with his wife and family that had gone before.
Most of all
he met the One face to face-- whom he had given his life at the age of 12.

He leaves behind three children, seven grandchildren, five great grandchildren an one great great grandchild.

He will be greatly missed by us all.

Services will be held at Crains Funeral home in Franklinton, Louisiana on Tuesday morning.

Thank you with all my heart for walking through this with me in pray and love.
May God greatly bless you all for the way you have give to me through your words.
I love you

What a celebration in must be happening in Heaven today over the arrival of such a faithful believer! That we KNOW is true, but the other I know is that it is sad, deeply sad in other ways for you who are left behind and who will miss him. I will continue to hold you up in prayer and to ask God to work in your non believing family's hearts at this time.

Through the months of knowing you-
you have painted such an image of Paw Paw for us. My heart is feeling your families pain. May all of you feel the presence of the Savior during this time. I hold the prayer request of yours close to my heart....

My heart felt sympathy... to you and your family... How hard it is to let go of those that we love... I cannot imagine those that have no hope of seeing them again....but we that abide in the Father God have the hope of tomorrow .... My prayers are with you today my friend.....

1Th 4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

1Th 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

BIG HUGS to you and your family. I pray things go well over the next few days. What amazing thoughts to what he is doing right now. Walking and talking with.....God. Oh how I long for that day too. I know you will miss him but praise the Lord that you will once again be joined with him in heaven!

Melanie said...

Sharon- I'm so sorry. i know the relief mixed with heartache when one we love goes on to meet our Lord. (I've lost both my parents w/in the last four years.) My heart hurts for you, but I will faithfully pray for thoes who are lost- that they might be drawn in by His sweet spirit at this time. I know your Paw-Paw would be proud if one of his loved ones would come to know Jesus, even through this time of loss. Blessings to you and your family at this time.

Denise said...

Sweet sis, my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. I know how much you loved dear paw paw. He is happily walking down those beautiful streets of gold, he will be watching over you. I love you.

Sandi said...

Consider this a cyber hug. My prayer are with you and family.

Amy said...

Hallelujah that he can finally see the one he has spent his whole life worshipping and that he is finally without pain (can you even imagine what life is like without any pain or distress in it at all)?!!! I'm praying for you and your family as you rejoice and grieve for his homecoming.

Pastor Lisa said...

Sharon. I cried as I read your post. Paw Paw! How he'll be missed. I know Heaven is celebrating and Paw Paw is where we'll all want to be but he will so be missed.

My prayers for you and the family. I pray the Holy Spirit comfort you and the family at this time.

And what a great testimony to Paw Paw's life if there's a huge altar call at the Homegoing Celebration and family members actually give their lives to Jesus. Wow. He's still earning gems in his crown!

Sharon, I am so sorry to read about Paw Paw. But I am rejoicing that He is at home in heaven. Your family will be in my prayers as you walk through this time of grief. Thank you for sharing Paw Paw with us.

Cahleen 何凱琳 said...

I'll keep praying for you, girl. I'm glad for the one postive in this whole situation -- that Paw Paw is finally home!

Alisun@ABrookeInTheForest said...

You have been in my prayers and on my heart this past week. Though you will miss Paw Paw sounds like you have comfort in knowing where he is and that it is a better place for him.
Wow to be with Jesus how awesome!!

freetofly said...

Oh, Sharon, what a loss I hurt that you all are feeling. What a testimony he has had, to walk with the Lord these many years. It is at these times we are SO grateful that we have eternal life, that he is actually rejoicing in a measure we can't fathom. Praise God for His goodness!

At the same time, I pray for each of your comfort and that as these days for the services move forward that his death would result in the salvation of many, not just a few, but many, I pray a hedge of proctecion around the family and friends that the enemy could not confuse their minds or stop their ears. I pray that the Lord's sweet spirit would minister to them through these days, and they would come to realize the truth they have been avoiding or doubting, and grasp it for themselves.

I pray that a lasting and complete work is being accomplished this week, to the Glory of God.

love you,
Maria

Big hus to you dear sister. I know your loss is heaven's gain and Paw Paw's too, but he surely will be sorely missed. May the comfort of God's presence surround you all through this time!

Andrea said...

Imagine the view from Paw Paw's eyes right now...

CrownLaidDown said...

Oh Sharon. I am so sorry. Tell Keith how sorry we are and that we will be praying for your family.

Remember this: He will never, ever let go of you. He knows every detail and will take care of you--just like He will for us. I know He will.

Love you, my friend!

Hi,

I happened to peep in, and awfully sorry to know what happened. It must have been hard, my deepest condolences.

Our Father God in heaven is a gentle shepherd who leads His sheep into the ultimate resting place. His glorious Kingdom awaits Paw Paw and everyone of us who are faithful to our Lord to the end. There comes a day our tears be wiped away and we will be reunited with our loved ones, to worship the Lord in one accord.

Meanwhile, may the Lord heal you and continue to embrace your family in love. Praying for you...

I'm sorry that I haven't written until now. I just saw your post today. What a bittersweet blog you posted. (((((hugs))))) to you my friend. I know its both painful and joyous that He is with the Lord and not with you. His love remains with you though and no one can take that away from you.

Mary said...

Sharon,

My sincere sympathies in the passing of Paw Paw. I know you and your family will miss him sorely. He is with his Lord and there will be no more sorrow, tears or pain. I will pray for you and your family that the pain of loss will be lessened.

Love and blessings,
Mary
