For those of you who visit A to Z for crafts, humor, and decorating tips, I promise all of those things will be back up and running on this blog very soon. This will not become the downer-dead Daddy-grief-blog. However, I am grieving right now, and I always promise to be real and true before you all.
Last night while huddling closely around my dad’s bedside with my two sisters and my mom, we prayed over my dad and sang praise and worship songs. It is exactly how my dad would have wanted it. The song/video below is the song my dad chose as the soundtrack to his departing this world and entering the next. His last breath was taken at 8:55pm right as the camera pans over the sea at the Sunrise/Sunset. (I’m sure that little blessing was just for me—see poem two posts down to understand what I’m talking about.) The video is beautiful and the accompanying verses perfect. It even ends with How Great Thou Art which is the song I posted here on my blog for my dad not too long ago. We couldn’t have scripted a better send off if we’d tried. Please take 5 minutes out of your life and honor my dad’s memory by watching this video. Thanks.
For those of you close to me, the details of the memorial service will be posted on my dad’s blog soon.
