His legacy
I Can Only Imagine  

When I first read this poem, It described my Dad so perfectly I knew I had to find a way to share it with others. ~Christy
The other day God called you home to live with Him above.
He said, " It's time my precious child to feel my arms of love".
He opened up the pearly gates and ushered you inside.
Then smiled at you and welcomed you with His arms open wide.
I can only imagine what Heaven's like but I'm sure you stood in awe.
I can picture you in Jesus arms just taking in it all.
I know you longed to be with Him, to see His gentle face.
To look into His loving eyes and feel His sweet embrace.
I'm sure you fell upon your knees and worshipped at His feet.
Then joined the choir singing songs and melodies so sweet.
You lived your life down here on earth by serving God above.
And now you'll spend eternity singing Him songs of love.
Oh how you loved Him all your days, you gave Him your whole life. Your love for Jesus shone so bright even in times of strife.
You shared His love by how you lived, you gave Him everything.
And I hear him say, "Well done" for living for the King.
Thank you for your faithfulness, for trusting in the Lord.
For all the times you prayed for me you deserve his best reward.
I know each day you said a prayer for family and each friend.
And I know that you were faithful and prayed until the end.
I know you're up in heaven now, your face I cannot see.
But all those precious memories will always stay with me.
I knew someday you'd leave this earth and live with God above.
But I will keep you in my heart and think of you with love.

From His loving Son, Mike  

I am part of my Father's legacy. He was the best Father in the world who left us to be with the Man he worshiped and Loved so much, GOD! He was always asking me to help out with various things at the Church. Planting a seed. Now he is in Heaven watching his seed grow. I pray that I would lead people to the Lord like my Father before me did. I am so glad he never gave up on me! I will never give up on him!
His loving son, Mike
