A year ago today, my father quietly passed from this life to the presence of our Lord.
Daddy tried to go on alone but he missed my mother very much and, as his health deteriorated, he ceased to try. It was and is very difficult to believe we lost them both in just a little over a year.
The promise of Easter lessens the sadness of loss. The death and resurrection of our Savior gives the promise of eternal life for all those who believe in Him. My parents believed this promise. That assurance brings me joy in the midst of sadness.
I am thankful for the years we had together and for the love of my parents. I love you, Daddy, and I miss you.
