... from the body, my precious Papa is present with his Lord and Savior. I can hardly write what I know to be true. On Sunday, October 2 at 5:15 am my dearest Papa stepped into eternity. His faith has become sight, he sorrows no more.


  1. Grieving with your family in your deep, deep loss now and so thankful for the Hope you have in Christ of seeing your dear Papa again... <3

  2. My heart-felt love and sympathy goes to my precious friends, the Honey Family as well as to Papa's daughter, 2 sons and their families. We grieve not as those who have no hope, but we grieve. May the Lord amaze you with the comfort only He can give. I will certainly miss his dear face and ready smile! I am so sorry for your loss.

    * There is something keeping for you, which is worth the having. Less of you resides out of Heaven now.* Samuel Rutherford

  3. I've thought about you a lot this week, Chessa, and I'm praying for your family. I'm sure your emotions are very mixed. I'm rejoicing with your Papa!

  4. I am so sorry, Chessa. So happy for him that he is reunited with Gigi and they are rejoicing with Jesus, but so sad for your huge loss. Your love for them was so amazing to watch...Praying for you and your family as you grieve and adjust to life without him...

  5. Chad Chessa Mitch Joann and Kids
    I am so sorry for your loss of Papa, A great Man has been called home. He is now forever sunshine on All our faces. He is Pain Free with Gigi. May God's Grace be with you all as this loss is still so new. Love you all

    Psalm 23
    A Psalm of David.
    1 The LORD is my shepherd;
    I shall not want.
    2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
    He leads me beside the still waters.
    3 He restores my soul;
    He leads me in the paths of righteousness
    For His name’s sake.

    4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
    I will fear no evil;
    For You are with me;
    Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

    5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
    You anoint my head with oil;
    My cup runs over.
    6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
    All the days of my life;
    And I will dwell[a] in the house of the LORD

  6. Thank you each one for your love, care and prayers for our family. We appreciate them more than you can imagine.
