It is with crushing sadness that I bring the updates on the death of my BELOVED dad. My siblings and I knew him as our defender, gatekeeper, legend, encourager and our flawless Daddy.
You presumably knew him as @the_leaf_blower, due to his diverting shenanigans with that extremely uproarious gadget! You wouldn’t know it, however my Dad had been in a years in length fight with colon malignant growth. My heart finds a sense of contentment since his torment is presently finished and the genuine triumph has been won since I realize he is currently with his Lord and deliverer, Jesus Christ.
He contended so energetically to stay for me, my siblings and his grandkids. He would frequently say to me. “God has such a great amount available for you, and I need to be here to see it”.
My last discussion with my Dad, as he battled through the agony, went this way. ME: Daddy I love you and it’s alright to give up. Is it true that you are all set and be with mummy now? MY DAD: Yes! He died calmly this week and I genuinely accept he’s currently rejoined with my mum in paradise, and despite the fact that I will never really get over losing him, my heart is full at the idea of him with my mom again. He cherished her to such an extent.
Much obliged to you to all who cherished him, “followed” him and praised this generally extraordinary of people. He cherished all of you. Giving adoration was his extraordinary blessing, his actual ability, his most prominent model. Rest well, Daddy.”
