From Flip:
Our dear brother David Lackey, died at approximately 1:40 PM (CST) this Holy Saturday, March 30, 2013. He was at Brookwood Medical Center in Birmingham, Alabama. Dave died in his sleep, he had a fever but no pain. Thank God.
We are rejoicing in the Lord that there is a Resurrection!  Please pray for Dave’s wife Denise, his son Brad, and his two daughters Tara and Amanda. Thank you Jesus that the grave does not have the last word!
His wishes were to be cremated, so they will be able to wait a few days before the memorial service. This will give people from other states time to make plans to come.  As soon as we know the details we will let you know. Please send me pictures for a memorial DVD that Colbi is producing. Also please send any comments or short stories (Colten will put something together to read at the service). Thank you!  
Earlier today Rusty was with Dave and had great prayer time with him. Rusty felt like Dave could hear him. He could tell Dave had trouble breathing. The doctors were managing his pain. Rusty shared with Dave how Flip, Dayle Sochia and Bill Shanks got to witness to a post-abortive mom in New Orleans this morning and they prayed with her to give her heart to Christ. They knew Dave would be happy to hear that and it would lift him up.    
Rusty read the OSA reading for today to Dave (John 18-19). He stopped at certain places and everyone that was listening was in tears. Today was preparation day.
Rusty even got to witness to a Jewish couple there. The man had prostate cancer and Dave had ministered to him earlier last week. Rusty prayed with them and suddenly the light went on. His wife was a little concerned and said “but we’re Jewish”. Rusty said “So was Jesus.”  PTL! What a memorable day this was!

We see the hope of the Resurrection in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 “And now, brothers and sisters, I want you to know what will happen to the Christians who have died so you will not be full of sorrow like people who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus comes, God will bring back with Jesus all the Christians who have died. I can tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not rise to meet him ahead of those who are in their graves. For the Lord himself will come down from Heaven with a commanding shout, with the call of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, all the Christians who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and remain with Him forever. So comfort and encourage each other with these words.”
