Remembering a wonderful man

Today my family is remembering a wonderful man, our Dad. Three years ago he left his hurting body and went to be with Jesus. I know that is where he is! He loved the Lord with his whole heart. He spent time studying the Bible. One of my best childhood memories is hearing Daddy get up very early in the morning, going downstairs to make coffee, hearing him go back upstairs to his study and shut the door. We all knew he had his Bible in front of him. He would read, worship and pray.

I miss him!

My Mom and Dad laugh at some old photos.
This makes me smile!


Dad loved his Grandchildren!
Here he is taking a nap with Jeremy,
my sister Jean's son.

Dad with Matthew,
son of my sister Rose.
 
 
Dad with his Dad, my Grandpa Witmer...
and his (our) sweet Mary.

Our Dad was a wonderful man.
 I and all who had contact with him call ourselves
 
BLESSED!

These pictures are GREAT!! I gotta steal the one of Dad and Jeremy! And I love seeing Mom laughing on that first pic! Three years ago at this time we were just realizing he was gone. What a heavenly experience that was!
