After I posted my Father's Day entry yesterday, I realized I never mentioned anything about Eric's Dad.
Talk about legacy......
Eric and I were in college in Iowa when we got the call that he had passed away. It was January 18, 1997. I will never forget that day. We had just gotten engaged a few months prior, and were close to graduating from college and getting married. It was very sudden and unexpected, and was a terrible time for our whole family.
Darryl was an amazing Christian man. He truly lived his life for the Lord, and dedicated himself to being a true servant in the kingdom. He never passed on a chance to witness or to help a fellow man.
He left a legacy to be remembered.....for sure.
I can see glimpses of him in Eric, and I just thank him that he was such a good dad and that he left Eric a legacy to live by. We miss him dearly.
