Obituary of Glen Keinick
After 4 weeks of fighting for his life our father passed safely into the arms of his Lord and Saviour at 4:34 PM on December 30, 2021 surrounded by his children and grandchildren. We spent the day pouring out our love over him and walking him home. He is back in the arms of our mother now and that gives us peace. It has been a month of tears and praying like we have never prayed before. We are so grateful God blessed us with the time we were able to be with him. Thank You for all your love and support and your prayers. We appreciate everyone who has reached out and shown us love. There are more hard days to come but with God’s love and strength we will get through this storm.
