Another child of God gone home.
My loving cousin, how much we will miss you. But the special memories will stay with me until my time comes.
You, your sweet wife Phyllis, your lovely sister Mary and her special husband Clifford all living at Walden Place..
It was such a blessing from our heavenly Father for you all to be there the time I brought Dad there to check out
the facilities. None of my family knew you were living there. And Dad was so very hesitant to move from his
independent apartment close by. But we knew he had to make a change even if he couldn't see the difficulty with
his aging and health issues.
But we know God looks after his children and when we came across you in the common area Dad was so excited
and became all in to moving there. That's when I really began to know you more as you and Dad were close first
cousins growing up and the many stories that were told from there on out. The entertainment that Mary and Cliff
provided the residents was so fun to watch.
I could go and on. But wanted to share the above brief moments of many since that time to all who shall read this.
I am so grateful for you and your family for all your many thoughts and prayers. God is so very good and amazing
how He orchestrates all our steps. I am so glad to be His child and having Jesus as my Lord and Savior in my life.
Each time we'd close from phone conversation or a visit, we both agreed not to say " good bye" but to say "see ya
again soon". So my loving brother.. you'll always be in my thoughts.. love you.. and see you again soon.
I'm sorry to hear of Bob's passing. Dad did a lot of things like going to conferences with Bob. And your folks were great friends of Mom and Dad. I remember having Mr. Gideon at Scott and his teaching PE and being the principal. One class I never excelled in. PE was never my strong point. Mr Gideon was kind and a good friend to Dad and Mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you go through this difficult time. May God's love surround you all and give you strength and peace.
