I Sure Miss You....

One year.......so much has happened since he has been gone.  So many things he has missed this last year that we longed to share with him.  I don't know how many moments that something would remind us of him....a place, a meal, or situation.  Or the times that we needed his strength and sound advice to guide us through life.   But we cannot be sad.....Dad is in a better place.  No more pain, no more suffering.  Dad is the lucky one! He has finished his race!  And heaven is a much better place with him there!  

Words cannot describe how much we miss you Dad!  We love you!

Dad's favorite scripture.....

Psalm 51

1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. 2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. 3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. 4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. 5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. 6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom. 7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. 9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. 11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. 12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. 13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee. 14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness. 15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise. 16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. 17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. 18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem. 19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.


  1. We miss him too! He was a great friend to my dad, and for that I am grateful. I have notes in my Bible from a message he preached at our church - I will never forget that message. It's so hard to believe it's been a year. Glad he is with Jesus!

  2. I miss him, too! He was so full of the joy of the Lord. Loved we he came and preached at Vic Tab!

  3. What a beautiful tribute! I didn't know him that well, but my parents did and they loved him so much! I can just see him and my dad sitting over in a corner of glory "talkin' shop". :)
