19 Nov My Father… the original Coastal Traveler
My father passed away 2 weeks ago at the age of 87. He lived a full life, surviving the great depression, serving his country in world war II as a radio operator on ships crossing the Atlantic and then again in his 60’s on commercial ships in the persian gulf war. In between he and my mother raised a family of 5 children.
This Saturday November 22nd it will be an honor to tell my fathers story at his memorial service. These photographs remind me not only of his interesting and diverse life but of the Godly legacy that he left behind. I will be sharing that Legacy at 11am at Birchman Baptist Church.
The greatest legacy one can pass on to one’s children and grandchildren is not money or other material things accumulated in one’s life, but rather a legacy of character and faith – Billy Graham
