Father’s day draws close. It is nearly two years (August 14) since my Dad’s passing. I miss him. Last Sunday, I showed my mom the dedication page in my dissertation. The citation honors both of them. It reads as follows:
In Memory of
Kenneth R. Woods
In your living you gave us your love. In your passing you gave us a legacy.
In our reuniting there remains a celebration
of Christ, community, and family.
In Honor of
Lillian B. Woods
The children of Watts yelled,
“The Bible lady is coming! The Bible lady is coming!”
Thank you for sparking in me a passion for the lost and for the little ones.
