The Austin Grad community was deeply saddened by the news received on Friday, February 10. The following announcement was emailed early that morning.
“David Worley, Jr. fell into a sweet sleep in the LORD Jesus on February 9th and will be buried in a private family service to await the resurrection of the body. A memorial will be held Saturday, February 18th at 10:00am at Brentwood Oaks Church of Christ.”
It was clear that the announcement had been written by David sometime prior to his passing. Clues included the succinct language, careful word choice, and the emphasis placed on the Lordship of Jesus and the hope of the resurrection in him.
