Heaven Has A Beautiful Soul



Terry's dad was called to Heaven and is now at peace and united with all his family and friends that have gone before him.
Terry's dad was a good man, great husband and father, grandfather and a Man of God.
We will miss this sweet man in our daily lives.

This is Terry's mom and dad's wedding photo. 
September 17, 1955

This was taken just a few years ago at their 60th wedding anniversary.  
This year in September it would have been 65 years together.
Terry's siblings and parents.
He loved his family.  Every Christmas Eve we all would wear our Christmas pj's.  He loved his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Here he is with our granddaughter Abby.  Boy did she love her great grandpa.

Our littlest granddaughter Charlotte loved her great grandpa.


After his retirement in his career life he went to school to become a Deacon in the Catholic Church.  To become a Deacon it requires four years of academic, spiritual and pastoral formation. He served his church for over 20 years.   This is a picture from when Terry's dad baptized our sweet little Charlotte.

Robert "Bob"  was a man of God and loved his family, friends and Church.
I wish I could hug you just one more time and hear you say to me "how are you sweetheart"?

Thank you for all your prayers for Terry's dad,   Terry and I and all of our family.  It is a heartbreaking time but he left a little of himself in each of our hearts that we carry with us.

Hugs,
Kris

  14. Kris,
    I'm not good with words to help the hurt, just know your hurt is shared by so many who not only loved your "Bob", but also for those who only know him through you, and we love you.

  20. What a lovely photo of him laughing and holding and holding his great-granddaughter. I know this wonderful man will be missed. Is Terry the first or second man on the far left side of that one photo? The two men look nearly alike.
