I’ve gotten several emails concerning the memorial service for Everette. I read the obituary today in Birmingham that said the following:

The family of Everette Shoub will receive friends at noon and then have a 1 pm memorial service at St. Luke’s Episcopal church in Mobile, Alabama, on Monday, October 13, 2008. In lieu of floweres, the family has set up an account at Regions for donations to be made on behalf of Everette’s 5 year old son, Grayson.

To my knowledge, the above is correct. I have not been in touch with the family so I’m only going by what I’ve read.

It is good to hear from many of my friends from high school and college. I am so saddened by this news, unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. It truly is sad in many ways. We live in a fallen world so our hope cannot be in this world, but in the world to come. My only hope is in Christ. In Him alone, I trust for eternal life.
