Blessed

We are back home after spending the weekend saying goodbye to Daddy.  I have to say that it was so encouraging to be with family and friends who knew and loved Daddy. They had many kind things to say about my father.  Over 500 sweet people made it a point to attend the visitation and the funeral. The funeral was held in the chapel at Peeples Funeral Home and there was standing room only for the service. All three of the ministers who officiated at the service were dear friends of Daddy and they did a wonderful job in eulogizing him and in making the point that because my father was a believer we had the joy of knowing we will see him again one day.  I have to say thank you to all who came by to visit, brought food and flowers. Our family was indeed blessed by the sweet outpouring of love for our Daddy!

So sorry for your loss. Praise God you will see him again one day and spend eternity with him. And I'll get to meet him! :)

Arlene, I too am so sorry for your loss. But it is such a blessing to know your Daddy is with the Lord and now free of the limitations he lived with in recent years. Isn't it a blessing to be reminded (as you saw all who came to honor him) of all the lives that he touched over his lifetime!

I'm praying for you, sweet friend.

Arlene, what a precious picture of your daddy. You will see him again one day and he will be no longer in pain or with sickness. {{HUGS}}
