Jan 2 - my Dad passed away in comfort at the age of 88 in a hospice after suffering renal failure in the end stages of Alzheimer’s Disease. I’ll miss my Dad but feel he is now at peace. I am comforted by the memories - his love, kindness and generosity to not only his family but to all he knew will never be forgotten.... His service in the US Navy and Army was honored at the funeral. He was always very proud to have served our country.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
