Remembering Dad

I have to admit, this has been a hard time for me lately. My birthday last year was the last time I saw my dad alive, essentially. He was still "alive" when I saw him in the emergency room, but unconscious. No more words of wit or wisdom from him at that time. I wanted to post a couple pictures that are dear to me now. The first is me and dad when I was a baby. Sorry for the picture quality - it's an OLD photo!

The second picture is my dad baptizing me after I accepted Christ. This took place on my 31st birthday - nine years ago.

Yesterday would have been Dad's 69'th birthday - a testament to the fact that he left us far too young. I love you and miss you, dad. Give Jesus a hug for me, okay?
