Sad News in the CCM World

I got news this morning from my friend and Radio Promoter, Chris Hauser, that a friend in Christian music tragically passed away:

"Ron McClelland of Gotee act Storyside:B collapsed today during a basketball game on a Christian cruise, and could not be revived.  Since December Ron had been co-hosting WCRJ/Jacksonville's morning show with Theresa Ross as well.  Please keep Ron's wife Rebekah (also on the cruise), the band, and WCRJ's staff in your prayers in the difficult days ahead"

I cannot fathom the sadness that must be in the hearts of those who lived close to Ron day in and day out.  Ron always had a big smile and a big heart.  His words were never anything but kind and complimentary.  I believe that we will see him again.  In the meanwhile, he will be missed.  Let's lift up his family in prayer as we think of them.

Praying for peace for those who knew himand will see him again, and for saving grace for those somehow touched by him that don't know HIM yet.

I have been a huge fan of Story Side B for years and years. They have come to our small town many times to perform for our youth. Ron was fantastic with out kids. Such a positive role model for the teens of Southington Christian Church. Our prayers are with Ron's family and the band. Peace be with you all.

It is always so sad to hear when someone passes away.
I pray for strength for those close to him that only God can give.
