On Friday night of Oct. 6th, 2018 my dear daddy went on to be with the Lord. He was 79 years young, and 2 months short of his 80th Birthday. He went very peacefully in his sleep, and had been feel good as usual just the day before. For that we couldn't be more thankful. What a wonderful way to go. But it was so sudden for the family, and loosing a parent is still hard.
We had a little graveside service with family and long-time friends of my Dad and Moms. It was a very nice service which was done by one of my brothers. We laid in him to rest right beside our son Clayton's grave. That was precious. But of course hard at the same time.
I have so many special memories of Dad. But the greatest part of his life to me was his strong and unwavering walk he had with the Lord. God was so real and alive in his life. And it was all part of who he was. There was no division between his spiritual life and the rest of his life. That was his life. And what a wonderful example that has been to me. I give all the credit of who I am in the Lord today to my dad and my mom. To me they were a great example to what an, 'as for me and my house', should look like.
I will always have great memories to look back on and cherish, but I'm going to be missing my dad the rest of my life!
In Him, Mae
