Happy 85th Birthday.....

....to my Daddy!!!



April 13, 1928 - December 4, 1994

Daddy only went through part of the 9th grade in school, 
but he was the smartest man I've ever known.
He could do math problems in his head and come up with the right answer every single time.  
There wasn't anything he couldn't fix around the house whether it was
electrical, plumbing, carpentry, mechanical.
He was simply amazing!!!
He was kind and gentle....loving and caring.
These verses of scripture so remind me of him.

I Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is patient and kind.
Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude.
It does not demand its own way. 
It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 
 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 
 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, 
and endures through every circumstance.

I love you, Daddy, and still miss you so much!!!

In HIS Most Precious Lve....and with mine, too!!!

Blessings,
Deb
