a precious death

Just in case you haven't yet read about it on Rickie's site, and others, Dr. Jerry Lee has passed away. I can't even begin to imagine the number of lives that Dr. Lee touched throughout the years. He was a gentle man, yet so passionate about his God and his work and never afraid to speak his mind. He was dedicated to his teaching and expected his students to produce the best work possible. He was kind of a legend around campus. He desired for each person that passed through his doors to develop a love for the books of the Old Testament. He faithfully taught the Word and lived the Word in his everyday life. He was a great example to all who had the priviledge of knowing him. Although he will be missed here, Dr. Lee's life proved that to live is Christ, but to die, is definitely gain.

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.
Psalm 116:15
