Tonight we had the unique experience of seeing Memorial Park, where our dear Papa’s grave lies, lit up with 2,000 candles. As my brother Dwight drove Mama & I around it was amazing to see bags & bags of small candles placed on both sides of the roadway around the park. They literally ‘lit up’ the path (the park is always closed at night, so it’s really dark – this was a special occasion..) Kinda surreal … but comforting.
Light in the darkness…. we remember Papa, his love & laughter & joy & the way he reflected the light of Jesus Christ to us & to so many, day in & day out.
We miss him! Oh, how we miss him. But we know he is in the Presence of Everlasting Light… Jesus Christ.
