John 14:1-4 Let not your heart be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms, If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also and you know the way to where I am going.
I remember as a child the special way you smiled as you dried a tear or fixed a broken toy. A kind and gentle man you would always understand and be there for me in the times of grief or joy. As I ponder to reflect on the man I most respect and the many special moments that we’ve had I finally understand why the moments were so grand for you’re more than just my father you’re my Dad.
Rest in Peace, with so much love and respect xoxoxo
