This might be the last or one of the last posts on this blog, so I thought it fitting to dedicate it to our Dad the author of this blog, since Sunday is Father's Day.  His legacy lives on in all the males in this family as he left us with such a great example of what it means to be a father, as well as a husband and more importantly a man.

Pat's Coffee Club members donated some seed money so we can plant a tree in the yard here at Woodland Gardens in memory of Dad.  It was nice of them to graciously remember Dad with a living tree.  I will search for a nice shade tree and have it planted later this summer!
I will be investigating how to cancel this blogsite soon.  If you have any concerns please let me know.

Joyful Reunion!

Late Thursday night/Friday morning during an awake time, I was thinking about Dad's service, and was giving thanks to God for the wonderful service that Pastor Wise and some of our family members gave.  It was a moving, inspirational time.  Then I was thankful for the wonderful time in seeing and catching up with some family members after the service.

Then I realized that the most joyful reunion of all took place at 4:20 AM on Sunday morning, May 21 when Dad was reunited with Mom.  What a time that must have been!  Then he was reunited with Scott, Samuel, his parents, sisters, and all those who have gone before, just as Mom was reunited with her loved ones back in January, 2012.

And as that reunion is more than we can probably begin to fully understand, the reunion that they had with God, their Creator, was even more so.  To be in Jesus' presence must be an experience that goes beyond our ability to comprehend.  A great song which tries to put this into words is called "I Can Only Imagine."  If you Google Ivan Parker I can Only Imagine, you can hear the song.
