Like a grain of sand that by
itself seems like nothing
but put enough grains together
and you have a complete beach.
To pick and choose any one grain of sand
doesn't even make a dent on the total remaining.
Dad helped to raise good kids, and grandkids,
The best way he knew how.
He was a little strict at times,
but was always proud of our accomplishments,
whether it be a soccer game, a karate tournament,
a new job or just something we enjoyed doing.
He was always there to fall back on
and always behind us all
Ready and always willing
to catch us should we fall.
IT WAS ALL THE LITTLE THINGS!

Services were held at the Sumner Family Church on May 5th, at 1:00 in
the afternoon. The rain stayed away long enough for friends and family
to enjoy a pot luck
reception that followed the services.
