Promoted to Glory

Major William Stuart McKenzie, Salvation Army (retired)
October 1, 1929 – November 16, 2009

My hero.

After a short but difficult battle following a heart attack two weeks earlier, William McKenzie, my father, entered into his final rest earlier this morning. The final passing was peaceful with my mother, my brother Cameron, sister-in-law Irma and myself at his bedside on the fifth floor of the Victoria General Hospital, Winnipeg. Thank you to all the staff at the Vic.

The funeral will be at 10:00 a.m. Friday, November 20, 2009
Southlands Community Church
83 Keslar
Winnipeg, MB

For I know that my Redeemer* lives,
and that at the last he* will stand upon the earth;*

and after my skin has been thus destroyed,
then in* my flesh I shall see God,*

whom I shall see on my side,*
and my eyes shall behold, and not another.

Job 19:25-27a
