I finally came back to TX from SD where the funeral was. Many have said that they have never been at a funeral where there was so much laughter! That may sound strange to many but when you know the destination on the one who has passed & you knew anything of his personality, then you would understand the laughter part. He loved humor & certainly enjoyed seeing others laugh. There of course were times of tears & seriousness as well, as he took his calling to reach souls for Jesus seriously & used both laughter & tears when telling the Gospel story.
We were all amazed at the number of people who came & from so many hours away. Especially when the weather wasn't good. After the funeral, we were totally snowed in for 48 hours. Greg missed his flight, Grayson & family made theirs (I29 closed after they got to airport town) & Grady & family missed their first one but made a later one.
I am now at Greg's house, perhaps going to other sons etc. the next few weeks & trusting Jesus to lead me where He wants me. Being without my mate is certainly not easy. Maybe it's harder because we were together 24/7 for 44 1/2 hrs.
Thanks much for all your prayers. Our (my) e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
