My dear father-in-law passed away this afternoon. He is now home with his wife and Jesus. And his parents and other relatives. He has earned his reward of a life spent in service to God. Today was his 77th birthday and we think it was an amazing gift to him to be finally able to go and not suffer any longer. Henry was a strong example of what it was to be a husband. a father and a follower of Jesus. He always took the high road. Was always willing to help anyone who needed a lift up. Always encouraged the kids in their walk with God. Always was thankful for the smallest blessings. He was not a perfect man but he was a down-to-earth good man. Well respected and loved by everyone. We were blessed to be able to have him join us on our family trip to the Dominican last December. We will always have fond memories of that trip. You will be missed dad and Grandpa.
