These are some of the lovely flowers and plants that our family received honoring my dad. Our friends were very generous with their time and their resources. Several made the hour trip to visit on Friday, even more made the trip to come to the service on Saturday. They will never know how special that was to me. My step mom has a large family, but our side of the family is small, so having my friends around during this difficult time was very comforting.
My dad's pastor called today to tell me he was praying for me. He didn't want me to think that I had been forgotten. What a thoughtful man he is!
Why do you think these folks responded the way they did? Yes, they love me, but more importantly, they love their Lord. His Spirit in them compelled them to love, to encourage, to sacrifice....... to minister to me and my family.
How blessed I am to know these people, to call them my friends, to call them my brothers and sisters in Christ, and to know that I will share eternity with them.
Farewell to April ’17
