Randy's Dad is home...

Randy's Dad went home to be with the Lord this morning and we are filled with such peace and the knowledge that he is forever resting with the Lord Jesus Christ. We are sad for those left behind... especially his loving bride Emolyn of 65 years. They raised four wonderful sons and a precious daughter while serving a career in the Air Force for 26 years. I was blessed to witness him as the loving father, father-in-law, papaw and husband that he was.
This is my very favorite picture of Dad taken this past Christmas. He was a fun-loving dear man and he will be forever missed.

We're praying for you all as you remember his life and the love that you shared with him.

What a blessing to know that he's with his Heavenly Father now.
