Some favorite photos...

The arms of safety and protection and the eyes of unconditional love...
This is the last family photo we had with Dad...Summer of 2005

This is my Dad in January of 1959, he was 31 years old...move over Elvis and make room for the Italian Stallion!

This is a portrait of my Dad that we used in the memorial video

This is one of my favorite pictures of him. He wrote on the back of it "December 1993. 66 years of age...I can see that I look it also" To me he looks so young here. He would shine when he preached...totally in his element. Notice the college ring on his right hand. I remember when I was a little girl, I would always ask him to take it off so I could "play" with it and I would put it on my pointer finger and pretend it fit.
Me and Dad in January of this year, 2006. Now I look back and see how quickly he declined.

One of my all time favorite photos. Mom, me and Dad at my wedding in May of 2000.
Each day continues to be a struggle. My head knows he's in heaven, free from pain and worshipping the One he served his entire life, but my heart feels a void and heaviness that I can't seem to shake. Thank you, friends, for your cards, your calls and your expressions of love and sympathy. They are all heartfelt and appreciated more than you know.

You humble me Tracey.

The pictures are great...thanks for posting them. Your dad was a sweet man.

You remain a huge part of my thoughts and my prayers, I just wish I weren't so far away...but from the bottom of my heart, I am here for you 24/7, never more than a few numbers away. I mean that. I really do.
