Michael, may you and your family experience a peace that goes beyond understanding during this time of loss. I just had my father’s memorial service today as he passed on May 11th. For me it has been a Blessing of peace because he suffered w/ Alzheimers & though I will miss him, I know he is free and celebrating everlasting life with Christ. May God richly Bless you and your family with strength and peace!

Breezy day at the lake. A little too choppy to fish. Hopefully the wind calms down this evening.

I lost my stepdad just over a year ago. He’s buried at Fort Custer. It is a difficult time and while you never truly get over it, time does help to ease the pain. Prayers up for MV and his family.
