Another Angel Got His Wings

Another angel got his wings on Friday, Dec. 9th, 2011.  This is the day that my Daddy was welcomed into the gates of Heaven.  My Mother and I were by his side in their home, when God called him home. He was 77. Daddy went peacefully in his sleep.  No more battling cancer, no more sickness...just pure joy of being healed and walking with our LORD.

Daddy & I when I was a flower girl in my cousin's wedding in 1968.
I love this photo. We were on vacation. Daddy in his shorts & socks with loafers~
Summer of 1971 in Panama City, FL~Daddy did not like the beach, but took Mom & I because he knew that I loved to play in the waves & sand!
Dad knew how to laugh!  From a young man to a grandfather.  Although we called him "grumpy" often, he still knew how to laugh out loud!
He served his country in the Army as a Ranger.

Our last Christmas together Dec. 2010
So to all of my blog friends, say a little prayer for my Mother, Brother and myself as we learn to live without our Father...he will be missed, yet I feel vast comfort knowing he is in Heaven with our Lord & all those love ones that went before him.  I am a Daddy's girl...even at 46 years old...


  1. Blessings for you and your family... I know your pain as my Daddy got his Angel Wings 12/22/1982 and my Mom 12/13/2008...

  2. I am so very sorry. I understand your loss very clearly. This is my first Christmas without my dad. He passed away suddenly 3 months ago. Prayers for you and your family.
    Hugs, Kim

  3. I will be keeping you and your entire family in my prayers. Thank you so much for sharing these precious family pictures of your dear Daddy. You'll always be his little girl. That's what my Dad always used to call me.

  4. Oh Sweet Tiffany - so very sorry to read of this - although, from your last post, I had a suspicion. Praying for that you, your mom, brother, and the rest of the family find peace, comfort and healing in your dear Daddy's memories. And truly hoping that the day comes quickly where a smile will fill your hear before a tear comes to your eye.....Hugs ~ Robin

  5. Sending special prayers for you and your family. What a wonderful peace to know he is spending Christmas with our Heavenly Father. Blessing, Vicky

  6. I can tell you from my own experience that the memories of your father are going to bring you great comfort in the days ahead. Praying for you and your family.

  7. I'm so sorry Tiffany. Both of my precious parents are gone and I miss them SO much. Enjoy the rest of the family and take some comfort in one another and your memories of your dad.


  8. Blessings to your family. Such a swat tribute to your father. My recently widowed father in law is staying with us for some holiday cheer. We certainly appreciate the importance of parents right now. Thinking of you.

  9. I'm so sorry for your loss. My father died 27 years ago (when I was in college) shortly before Christmas. He had been so sick (cancer); yet, surprisingly, our Christmas that year was filled with happiness and relief for the end of his suffering and the joyful memories we had of him. I wish for you and your family the same for your first Christmas without your father.

  10. Oh dear Tiffany...what a beautiful tribute to your Dad. Your memories are priceless and will be your source of comfort. I know your Dad is looking down on you and your family this Christmas and sending you blessings. Peace, dear friend.

  11. I loved the pictures you chose of you and your Daddy. I am so sorry for your loss. Sending you hugs, love and prayers.


  12. Beautiful pictures of you and your dear Dad, so sorry for your loss. Hold on to those precious memories. Wishing you peace, love, hope and joy as we celebrate the birth of our Savior. Sending you love and prayers!

  13. That was a sweet tribute to your dad, Tiff. Brings tears.
