Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his faithful servants. Psalm 116:15

 To my readers and blogging family:

Dear friends, My dad won his short-lived battle with cancer yesterday (March 22, 2012) when he was ushered through the gates of heaven to meet his Lord Jesus after following him for 67 of his 85 years. Dad entered eternal life just 13 days after his 85th birthday.

Dad was a father, grand-father, and great-grandfather as well as a pastor for over 60 years. In the days ahead I will concentrate my efforts on celebrating, remembering, crying and rejoicing in the heritage Dad left us. As a result I’ll be taking some time off from reading your blogs and sharing with you the words that God has given me.

My dad was the inspiration behind much of what I write and my number one cheerleader when I stepped behind the pulpit. He was as proud of me as I was of him. We met together weekly and I gleaned much from his wisdom. Dad was a true example of my Heavenly Father who loves me unconditionally. Dad, Pastor Max, will be truly missed and I can’t wait to meet him again on the other shore.
