Thank you!

I hope to post about the homegoing celebration soon. We still have company and the funeral was only this morning. It was indeed a celebration. I just wanted to stop by and express my gratitude to the wonderful comments I received on the memorial picture. Dad C was always a shepherd at heart - even to the point of always loving to carry a walking stick that was long enough to be a staff! He had several lovely shorter sticks, but this was his one of choice. I heard in one of the stories about him that I'd never heard that he carried this one on a plane one time. You couldn't do that now!

I have to go back to work tomorrow now and try to dig out from under the e-mails, voice mails, and snail mails. But hopefully I can write tomorrow evening.

I was wondering when the funeral was going to be...I'm glad it all went well and you can certainly celebrate the fact that he had such a wonderful long life! He might not be there in person anymore but he will certainly always remain in your heart!

Enjoy this time with your family and loved ones. Funerals can be so lovely and yet so physically and emotionally draining. Our love and prayers are with you all, during this sad time. Miss you! :)

Good to hear from you again. It's wonderful that it was a celebration of a life well lived. Try to get a little rest. Perhaps you can have a chance to this weekend. I'll continue to pray for peace and comfort for your family.

Dawn, I'm praying for you right now. I beieve there is no tired quite like emotionally drained tired. I pray you'll have a good night's sleep and awake refreshed and renewed. I pray for you peace and that you'll be able to get all the things done that need to be done. I know this is a difficult time.
I hope you can really rest over the weekend. I'll check in with you when we get back from Houston.
