One of the most Godly men I have ever met. I think of him as our Job ..he simply accepted all that happened to him with grace. He never questioned Why me ..but just walked and leaned in to Jesus. He had a powerful life ...influencing many in our family ..with his wisdom , kindness, understanding and prayers. Dad I so loved you and you will be missed but I am also so happy that you are HOME and free and I know we will see you again ..Thanks for all the great memories . Praying I can follow your example .

One day I was mentioning how God answered my prayer for a loving dad. My school kids got spiritual and began telling me that God gave me himself. I agreed with all their responses, but told them he gave me a person here on earth day to love me, listen to me, give Godly advice and put up with my teasing. Really, they responded, who is it...Grandpa Baber, my dad.
