Dad's Memorial

Dad's Memorial on Saturday(posted on Dad's BLOG)

Saturday, we all got together for a Memorial for my dad, "Moe".

It has almost been a year since Dad passed away, and it sure went by fast.

Mom wanted to meet at the gravesite so we did, Gregg, Joan & Family, Me and Family, Aunty Mimi, Dee, Glenn, Kimi, Brianna, Aunty Ar (Dad's little sis), Aunty Aggie (Dad's Big sis) and Uncle Gary, and Scottie.

Mom had me open in prayer and by God's grace,
I didn't cry, half-way through like my normal self.
I did, however, ask God (before I began to pray) to turn off the water, and HE did.

I prayed a very thankful, grateful prayer to God for allowing this fantastic man to be a part of all of our lives and because he had asked Jesus into his heart,
I believe I will see him again.

We all shared stories about Dad-

how generous he was,
what a great, BIG laugh he had,
how he protected his little sis,
how much he loved to eat,
how much he loved his kids &
how much he did to help friends,
how he loved people,
how they loved him,
how he loved life!

It was GREAT!

I hope when I die, friends and family would same about me...

Makes one think....

what do you want people to say about YOU when you die?

LIVE and LOVE today like it was the last year, month or week of your life.

Would you do things differently if it were?

WHAT would you do differently?

At Bible Study today, we prayed for a woman having brain surgery-
it was sudden,
what if it were you or me?
It could be...
You just never know.

Therefore we do not lose heart!
Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is UNSEEN.
For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is ETERNAL.
2 Corinthians 4:16-17


  1. Dear, dear Janet - I read your update on your dad on your other blog last night. I left a comment there.

    But, let me say again - I can't wait to meet him, and tell him what a wonderful daughter he has. Of course, he already knows that!

    Love you - and GOD BLESS!

  2. Hi Janet -

    I was moved by this tribute to your dad. It is obvious that he was a loving man who was deeply loved and appreciated.

    Loved those 2 Corinthians scriptures that you cited.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I LOVE happy, healthy, sparkly comments!
