My dad, Charles Lee Stinson Jr., went into the hospital on Sunday, January 30th.
He passed away on Monday, February 7th. We celebrated his life with a worshipful funeral service and laid his body to rest on Friday, February 11th.
|Ethan, Dad, and me on Father's Day 2004. Three generations of Stinson men.|
While on this earth, he enjoyed fishing, flipping cars for a profit, and spending time with family.
Through the way he lived his life I have learned...
How to honor my father and mother.
How to be a great father.
How to be a loving husband.
How to be a committed follower of Jesus Christ.
And, how to have a good time and enjoy life.
Unfortunately, I have stumbled in all of these areas at different times in my life.
Thankfully, he also taught me about forgivness and grace and mercy.
I thank God that I was raised by him and pray that I can be half the man he was.
I will miss him immensely until I see him again one day.
Heavenly Father, thank you for letting him be my earthly father.
And Lord, please tell him I said "Hi" and "Don't worry.
I'll be sure to sell your blue '76 Ford pickup for a profit." =)
