RIP Dad

What a week this has been. My last post was about the end of life and that time has come. My dad left us at 4am this morning. My mom woke me up and my first thought was “thank you Jesus” because now he is at rest. He has his perfect heavenly body. Completely healed and the best of all…He is with Jesus, whom he loved so much.

Our church family has been with us every step of the way and I couldn’t ask for better people in my life. So now mom and I carry on together. We’re sad because he isn’t with us anymore but rejoicing because he is in the arms of Jesus, where he’s wanted to be for so long.

So…Here’s to ya dad. Love you and we will miss you but we’ll see you again one day.

And above all…thank you for being the dad you didn’t have to be…

Friends

Happy Birthday Dad!

Tomorrow is my dads birthday. So I wanted to do something really special though he’ll probably kill me. Oh well he’ll get over it right?

 

Me and my dad

I don’t have a lot of pictures of me and my dad together because they are all in albums and I just haven’t gotten around to putting them on cd’s or on the computer. So the few I do have I’ll post.

Here’s my dad and I not long after I was born

 

How cute was I! Oh yeah this is about my dad…How cute was my dad!

My dad and I in Hawaii

I know..hard to see. I think it was about 1982ish. Photo quality being what it was in the 80’s you’ll forgive me.

Moving forward a lot of years. Dad and I at the Grand Canyon

 

 

and the bets picture of all. The one that belongs in a museum. The photography award winning photo of 2011.

 

That’s what we did to him on his 65th birthday last year. He was such a good sport.

So..Happy 66th birthday dad! I love you and I hope you forgive me for this.
