My Daddy (April 2012)

My Dad went home to be with our Lord Jesus this morning about 24 hours ago.  I can't sleep...I feel the need to look at pictures...and write.  But the writing is not coming easily this time.  How can you compact a man's life of nearly 82 years into a few paragraphs?  How can you do it justice?  So I just linked a few blog posts here to bring you "up to snuff" on who this man was and is and always will be, to me.

All I can say is - praise God for the life He gave us in Dad...and for the sweet, sweet promise of eternal life with Him for all who call upon His name and believe.  Dad was my first faith teacher, the one who "hooked me up" with God.  And I know he did that for countless other people through being a husband, a father, a grandpa, and in A.A.  Daddy, I love you and I miss you sooooooooo much, but I know you are breathing a lot easier, walking and laughing and reuniting with David and Grandma, Grandpa, and so many other loved ones!  I love you!!!
