Hello friends. Since my last post, the family has trekked to Poteau, Oklahoma and back to bury Dad's ashes next to Mom's. We honored Dad, celebrated him, recognized him, thanked God that he is no longer suffering the humiliation of Parkinson's and dementia, and comforted each other with our love and the confidence that, while we can't return Dad to us, we can go to him.
As I promised, I will write more about Dad in the days to come. Right now, I'm afraid my mind is scattered and my emotions flat. Soon though.
A memorial service for Dad will occur on August 20, 2011 at 11:00 AM Central. The service will be held at Southcliff Baptist Church, 4100 SW Loop 820, Fort Worth, TX 76109.
I will meet anyone interested for breakfast at Courtyard by Marriott, 3150 Riverfront Dr, Fort Worth, TX 76107 at 8:00 AM on the morning of the 20th.
Dianne and I will host a reception for family, out-of-town guests, and friends at our home, 2020 Wilshire Blvd, Fort Worth, TX 76110 from 3:00 to 5:00 .
Again, know of my deep gratefulness for your care, love, and words of comfort. I look forward to honoring Dad with you on August 20th.
