This past Thursday (August 12) was a difficult day for me and the Adams family. It marked the one year anniversary my sweet daddy went to be with Jesus, the Lord he loved and served for as long as I can remember. This year has literally galloped by and it truly seems like it's only been five or six months since we said our last goodbye.
My daddy was in World War II and we had planned to have a military guard ceremony for him. Due to a fire and papers being lost, the appropriate papers from the VA did not come in time for the military guard to be present when we laid him to rest. The mortuary told my sister that when they came, they would do the military guard ceremony any time we chose. Unknown to my mom, my sisters Pauline and Charlene arranged to have the military ceremony done one year to the day of memorial service. My momma was so surprised and very pleased (you did good, sisters of mine). I don't have pictures yet, but will post them when I do.
To honor the memory of my dad, I am posting a link where you can read the tribute I gave at his memorial service. To view this tribute, please click here: http://www.squidoo.com/mradams
I miss you daddy, but look forward to the day we will be reunited! Praise God for that assurance.
Your loving daughter, CeCi :)
