In Memory

My dad lost his battle with lung cancer last weekend. The past couple of weeks have been rough, emotional, and just plain sad.
His suffering is over and I can only believe that he is with our Lord in heaven.

I took this picture in April. It was my dad's 69th birthday and we surprised him and took him out to lunch. My children all got to see and talk to their Papa the week before he passed. I have so much to say about what an incredible man my dad is, but I can't put any words together right now.


  1. Jen,
    I am so sorry to hear about your dad. I am happy that I had the opportunity to meet him and watch him conduct the YPSO group.
    I am sending comforting thoughts to you....
    If I can do anything for you let me know.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. What a difficult time.
    I'm so glad you have the comfort of knowing he is in heaven.

  3. Hi Jen,
    Thanks for your sweet comment. I check in on here every now and then to see how y'all are doing, and I'm always awed anew by how beautiful your children are. On a different note, I'm so sad to hear about your father. I am so very sorry for your loss and pray that each day, the grief becomes easier to bear.


  4. Jen, I am so sorry for your loss. We have lost a few loved ones to cancer and it is so difficult to watch them suffer. I have often thought that their long suffering gives us a chance to say our goodbyes, but at such a cost. I truly believe that people who endure these long term illnesses are the most valiant of souls! I have no doubt your father was a wonderful man by the wonderful daughter he raised! You will be together again! Blessings :)
