Dear God, Please take the soul and spirit of this dear departed one into the sweetest corner of Your mind, the most tender place in Your heart, that he, and we, might be comforted. Goodbye, Rolly. We will miss you. Thank you for being in my life, and for loving us so very much. Nate, Katie and I had so hoped to get to feel your hugs one last time over Thanksgiving vacation, but it is not to be. You filled our memory banks to the brim with love and laughter over the years. You taught us how to cheat at cards (haha!), and always had stories to tell. Nate treasures the time two years ago when you told him about your WWII experience, even though it was difficult for you. You have taught him so much about being a man. I bet you didn't even realize it, did you? Katie remembers the annual trek to the Go-carts--you always stood at the fence, watching them with a big grin on your face, and it was easy to get you to pay for another turn. I remember you taking coffee to Em every morning, and I can't pass a perfectly manicured lawn without thinking of you. So many memories...thank you!

I'm so sorry, Sue. May you find peace this weekend in His arms and comfort in memories of Rolly.

I haven't been keeping up with your blog. I'm sorry for your loss. I love that picture of him waving, how perfect.
