Dad- Holidays, every Birthday, no matter family or friend were important and cause for celebration.
Now Dad, we are gathering to celebrate your 96th, missing you now almost 5 years. Seems impossible.
Dad, we miss your wisdom, your input to most any subject - good, bad or indifferent, your passion about all important things, your trustworthiness, your willingness to share all good, your laugh, your love of family and the respect you showed through your unconditional love - and the love for our Mom (your bride you liked to call her). We watched as you two shared almost 72 years together, we too were blessed.
Dad, our world today is so angry and dangerous. We live in fear of a man made virus and of a world who's mission it seems is to destroy each other's beliefs and culture- for what, money and power….
Dad- our birthday wish would be for you to look down on all of mankind and help God fix this- fix it for Mom, your Children, your Grandchildren, Your Great Grandchildren
And for the World to just share in all it's wealth
We love you so much and visit often-but of course you know that.
Dad, we know you are dancing with Angels and we will all meet again.
Your Mama and familyRay Decker 9-20-1925 to 11-27-2016
