Just days after Christian author Randy Alcorn's family gathered together, he announced his wife has died.

"Nanci is with Jesus," Alcorn wrote of his wife Nanci, who died of colon cancer. "So happy for her. Sad for us. But the happiness for her triumphs over the sadness. Grieving is ahead, and it will be hard, but these last years and especially this last month have given us a headstart on the grieving process."

The "Heaven" author posted a sweet tribute to Twitter Monday evening:

Alcorn expressed gratitude for those who have been praying for Nanci, reassuring them they should not feel their prayers were unanswered. He explained that many of them were, in fact, answered, and "many others were answered in a better way than we could ever ask."

He ended his Twitter thread by writing he is "overwhelmed with gratitude to the One full of grace and truth."
