Saying Goodbye To A Loved One

Hi you guys…

I just wanted to pop in today to say I’m sorry for not answering all of your emails and comments yet. Please don’t think I’m ignoring you!

Today, we buried my husband’s father.

He died the day after Jerry’s 31st birthday, this past Monday.

The viewing and service today were beautiful, a true tribute to such an honorable man.

I don’t have any photos right now, but I’d like to write more in depth sometime in the next few days, once I get my hands on pictures. My husband and his brother built a beautiful casket for their father, and their sister painted a mural on the lid.

I’d love to share the funeral’s homemade touches with you soon.

Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers for our family. We are sad, but it is incredibly comforting to know that it’s not “goodbye”, but just “see ya soon”.

  1. Hi Kendra and Jerry,
    I was enjoying your website, and just learned of Jerry’s father passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you! Jerry’s dad has finally received his promotion! I know he was proud of Jerry and his special family. Hope to see you all again soon. Love you.

  2. Dear Kendra and family,
    When I lost my dad seven years ago, a wise person told me some thing that I pass on anytime some looses some one . It will be good again, just different. God Bless you all. Brenda

  3. Kendra, Jerry and Family,

    My deepest Condolences you all. As I posted before I know exactly what you are going thru right now and will be praying earnestly for your family as you grieve. This is a sad time and in the weeks to come, if Jerry is anything like my husband, will have moments where he will break down and just need to cry, and you will be there to just hold him. It has been 2 months for us and my husband still needs my arms. The same will be for you too Kendra. Don’t forget to cry and grieve also. Even though he is in the presence of Jehovah now, and it is a joyous thing, here on earth it is still a sad time because you can’t physically see, talk to, touch, or smell (my FIL had that wonderful scent of aftershave that I loved to smell everytime I got a hug from him). Just know that even though we don’t know each other personally you have a friend here to talk to if you ever want to. Praying!


  4. So sorry for your loss,losing a parent is never easy, and I will pray for you and your family today and everyday. It is a tribute to him that he has such wonderful children who would do that as a final testimony of their love and respect for him. Blessings to you my friend.

  5. Peace to you and your family. Losing a parent is a monument set along our path as was having children was a blessed monument on his path. Time will soften the blow leaving fond memories of the delivered soul. The promise will set us together once again.

    My father has been gone for 12 years…. love you pop.

  6. No apologizes are necessary. You have a beautiful family that you need to be with and love on. When it’s time, you’ll be back. In the mean time, God bless your family and wrapping His loving arms around all of you. {{hugs}}

  7. I hope that you and your family are comforted during this time.

    Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. 2 Cor. 4:16
