Dad's Funeral

Dad died one month ago today on May 18th. It seems fitting that I now post the pictures from his funeral.
Dad's funeral was on Thursday May 22nd in Sugar Land Texas. It was a wonderful celebration of his life. It was such a bittersweet time to meet with so many loved ones and share memories of our sweet dad.

Here are some pictures of the event.

My sweet Grandma Messick. My Aunt Juleen, Aunt Valerie, my sweet mom, and my cousin Tiffany.

I love this one of the pall bearers. I love the reverence and the somber mood their faces portray.
A dear family friend, Rebecca Morton, did the flowers. She did the flowers at my wedding and Rhonda's too. The flowers were absolutely beautiful, and it meant so much to us.
John Quinlin (foreground) was a wonderful home teacher and family friend for many years. Bishop Owens in the background.

My lovely sisters.

Dear family friends. Sherie Staub and Bill Moore. It means so much that they loved our dad so much.


The grandkids enjoyed placing flowers on the casket.

We miss you, Dad.

Gina, your dad was the neatest man. He always had a smile on his face and truly cared about how people were doing! I hope your family is doing well!
