The Funeral

My father no longer gasps and struggles. He departed this temporary home on September 29th and we laid his bones to rest on October 2nd.

The visitation and funeral provided me the opportunity to see friends from my old hometown that I had not seen in decades.

My brother in law is a former minister and did an excellent job presiding.

The former preachers wife from my hometown church sang beautifully. It was truly stunning.

A former co-worker of my father and several grandchildren offered some inspirational, personal memorials.

My thanks to everyone who was there to say goodbye to Daddy.
