These two wonderful people are my parents. They have spent 55 years and 5 months married to each other. Wednesday, my father passed from this mortal earth and went home to his Heavenly Father. He was my Hero! He married my mother even though she had two kids. He loved us even when we made mistakes. He encouraged not only my brother and I, but our spouses and our children. Our grandchildren became his great grandchildren. In the past little while one of our grandchildren decided to make my parents his pen-pals. They have been writing letters back and forth full of wonderfully loving thoughtful things to each other. My dad will be missed not only by our entire family, but by his friends, neighbors and fellow Church goers. He and mom went on 6 missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to places such as Scotland, Thailand, Russia. While traveling to and from these places they stopped at other places to visit. So they went to New Zealand, Puerto Rico and Korea. The did a lot of good while on these missions, serving others and helping spread the word about Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Thank you dad and your eternal companion mom for all you have done for us, and our family.
You are truly a great example to us all. See you in the Eternities.
