What we thought was going to be a very short time at daddy's bedside turned into a 5 day bedside vigil. These have been days I will forever cherish. My siblings came from out of town and we loved daddy together until he left our hands and went straight into Jesus' loving arms. We sang, reminisced, read scripture and held his hand along with his wife, our "Aunt Mom". Please don't look at these photos as sad but see them as a beautiful gift to us, his family. We were given the gift of loving him together during his final days. On his last morning, as we were singing around his bed, we all heard him try to join our song. So very special. Then at 7:59am on January 25, 2013, our daddy entered into heaven with Jesus for eternity. So thankful for the hope and assurance that we will see him again someday. Thank you daddy, for being the very best!
