In Loving Memory of
|From August to February,
Rachael had no car. Anytime she came home, I drove down on a Saturday morning to get
her and bring her back (10 hours roundtrip), then down and back on Sunday to take her back
to the Honor Academy. 20 hours of driving in two day's time, but she was worth every
minute of it. I did it gladly. She was able to get home by Saturday afternoon,
and we'd head south for Texas again Sunday afternoon following worship and a family meal.
After her unexpected December sinus surgery, however, the weekday followup visits required by her ENT caused me to miss too much work. We had to get her a car. By February, I was able to let her have my car as I had found a cheap ol' "granny car" as my kids call it.
The reason I'm showing you the two photos below, not that they are the best sunrise photos ever taken, but they are my memory of all the early saturday morning trips to Garden Valley to go pick up my baby girl.
Below is a pic of one of
Rachael's garage sales. She put a lot of work into several different fund-raisers,
trying hard to raise as much money on her own as possible for the mission trip. We
are forever grateful to all our friends and loved ones who helped support her efforts to
help herself toward such a worthy cause.
the girl liked to cook
and she was good at it
Alan was having a little
trouble waking up one holiday morning...we have just the crew to help with that
A family tradition, following
in my father's footsteps, we ALWAYS have a reading of scripture, followed by prayer, before
opening Christmas presents. While the presents are nice and fun, focus must never be
lost on the fact that Jesus is the reason for this very special season.
Ed and his
the whole crew...thank you,
God, for family
