Thank you to those of you who are praying for me and my family. We deeply appreciate it. It is the morning after and we continue on with preparations, mutual comfort, and going about the necessary business of life. Some are able to take the rest of the week off. I will be working the next two days and fulfilling obligations to my church. We all look forward to celebrating Dad’s life together on Friday. Again, thank you for your prayers. Mourning lasts for a night and for awhile longer, but joy attends it along the way, providing hope in the midst of sorrow.
