Photo Flashback! Until We Meet Again...

Two weeks ago, we said goodbye to my father-in-law, Jim. 

Jim is missed by many. He loved to laugh and was equal parts ornery and generous. I am thankful for the time I was able to spend with him and desperately wish my husband and children had more years with their father and grandpa.  The girls decided Grandpa's favorite things were John Deere, Pepsi and the WSU Shockers.

Jim went to Walt Disney World four times and I was a part of the last two. He read 1 Corinthians 13 to start our Disney wedding and asked "who gives this woman?" A couple years later, we took a trip with both sets of parents and managed to get everyone to ride Everest...once.  Jim didn't know quite what to make of character meals but was a good sport. 

Jim, until I see you again in Heaven someday, I promise to take good care of the family you left behind. Thank you for raising Andy to be smart, funny, loyal and a hard-worker. The apple didn't fall far from the tree.

  1. Jim was a fun guy to be around. I know he will be greatly missed by the whole clan. I will miss him.

  2. I'm so sorry for your loss. He sounds like a wonderful man that will be sorely missed. {{HUGS}}

  3. I'm struggling with words this morning to express my sympathy as it is hitting too close to home at the moment. Thank you, though, for sharing these wonderful photos and memories.

  4. We continue to keep your family in prayer, Amy! What wonderful memories you have to hold onto.

  5. So sorry for your loss. You have some amazing memories to cherish here for you and your family.
