My HERO returns to his Heavenly Home!!!!!
Friday morning early, at 1:20AM
here in Sweden, I received a call from my oldest son, Josh, informing
me that Grandpa, my Dad, had passed away from a heart attack in his
home. He returned home to Heavenly Father on May 19, 2016, and I have
had a huge hole in my heart.
He was a wonderful Father to me and my siblings, and he loved his
grandchildren and great-grandchildren. But oh how he missed his
companion, Joyce, and longed to be with her again. I am sure the
reunion with mom and my younger brother, John, was sweet beyond measure.
Dad was a veteran of the Korean War and had a great love for his country
and always showed great respect to the flag and those who served to
keep others free. He was layed to rest in the Meadow Cemetary by the
side of his eternal companion, Joyce Slack Beckstrand. I love my Father
and mother and have blessed to have them both as wonderful examples. I
miss you Dad.
A special thanks to my wonderful children and grandchildren for stepping
in and representing Tammy and I, as we continue in the Lord's service
here in Sweden. The Lord requires us all to sacrifice, and not being
able to be with family at this time is ours. We love our family and are
so grateful for the lives they are living in the gospel. Thank
goodness for our wonderful missionaries in the Sweden Stockholm Mission
and for their love and prayers at this time for us. We love them and
count them as our Family.
