Today I’ll just post the Psalm shared at my Dad’s memorial service yesterday. I got to watch via Facebook and the service was beautiful. Hundreds were there and my brother did a great job as MC. My sisters sang praise songs and person after person shared how Dad had changed their lives by bringing them to the truth. It was powerful. I’m proud of him and my family. He is missed but will never be forgotten.
Have a wonderful Lord’s Day.
“Blessed are those who fear the Lord,
who find great delight in his commands.
Their children will be mighty in the land;
the generation of the upright will be blessed.
Wealth and riches are in their houses,
and their righteousness endures forever.
Even in darkness light dawns for the upright,
for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous.
Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely,
who conduct their affairs with justice.
Surely the righteous will never be shaken;
they will be remembered forever.
They will have no fear of bad news;
their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear;
in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.
They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor,
their righteousness endures forever;
their horn will be lifted high in honor.
The wicked will see and be vexed,
they will gnash their teeth and waste away;
the longings of the wicked will come to nothing.”
I am so terribly sorry for your loss. For that many people to show up to pay respects says a lot about his character. He must have been a special man. I will be praying for your mom.
David, Like yourself your dad was obviously a great man considering the number of people who attended his service. I hope your clan are all doing well, and you have taken all the time needed to grieve. The Goodies are not going anywhere. Cheers.

You are a tribute to both of your dads…. I wish I could have known both of them, they sound like they were great guys…and I know they must have been proud of you.
You have my sincere sympathy. May God comfort you and your family, and give you grace even in the grieving.
