In Loving Memory...

I was gone since Saturday morning because I was in California for my father-in-law's memorial service.

For those of you who are friends with my wife on Facebook, that isn't a big surprise. For the rest of you... that may have come out of the blue. Sorry about that. Sometimes it's hard for me to know how to give you the heads up on stuff.

That's why I didn't post Monday or Tuesday.

But back to my father-in-law. Rather than bore you with any tidbits I could piece together, I would like to share his blog with you. He started it in March and has a few updates now and again. All of them insightful and interesting.

As a blogger, I have no better way to honor him than to share his final thoughts with you. Please, visit his blog.

I'm very sad to hear of your loss. Reading through his blog, it's evident that his earthly presence will be greatly missed. May God fill you with His peace during this time.
