Our hearts are filled with sadness but our souls are singing praises for God taking Daddy home to be with our Lord and Savior. His requests are very simple: nothing fancy, no flowers; instead, if you feel led, make donations to your favorite charity or to the Alzheimer’s foundation. His wish was for us to be happy for him and he will be waiting for us. Graveside service will be 1pm Friday December 1, 2017 at Waco Memorial Park, 6623 S I35, Waco, with Darrell Shaw officiating.
