"Remebering my Dear Dad today (as every day) with great LOVE.  
It would have been his 85th birthday today.

Another year has passed. The JOY we hold on to is in the "HOPE of Heaven". As Dad waits in Heaven for the resurrection day, the Lord remains our JOY and STRENGTH for every passing day we live here on earth. We are thankful for Dad (John) and look forward to the transforming power of the risen Jesus who will make all things new in His time.

Giving Thanks and Praise for the Creator of All things and holding on to the Great Promise of things to come! AMEN!

"To think about him again is to remember Christ in Him.  The Grace of God in all that John did for others is my wonderful memory of him.  In all of this God was glorified in John's life.  Heaven is his home now but he also lives in the hearts of those that love and remember him."

"My dear Dad I still greatly miss you and love you! – I know that you are with the Lord and I am thankful to Him for all that He has done in the life I have spent with you. I am thankful every day for you and for the love you gave, which I continue to feel. I hold on to the hope that I was taught and that you held so dearly Dad:  

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
  All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.

His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.

When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
In Him, my righteousness, alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

Remembering you with love Dad!"

"July 1st 2014
Today Dad would have been 84 years old.
I miss him just as much today as when he went to be with the Lord.

I am forever changed because of you Dad. I am forever grateful for knowing you and being your daughter. I love you! Helen X

"Forever Changed"

We seem to take for granted
the important things in life.
Like loved ones, friends or family,
Maybe a husband or a wife.

We think they will always be there
no matter what we do.
But now I know that isn't so, I'm
"Forever Changed" because of you.

I no longer take for granted
the things I hold so dear,
I cherish every moment
I have my loved ones near.

We never, ever know just when
our time on earth is through.
I knew instantly that I would be
"Forever Changed" because of you.

No, my life will never be the same
as it always was before,
When you were still a part of earth
Before you knocked on Heaven's door.

And when your knock was answered
and the Angels welcomed you,
God knew right then my life would be,
"Forever Changed" because of you.

Unseen and unheard, but always near.  You are so loved, so missed, and so very dear."
