Dear praying friends,
My hero, my dad, D. John Richard, just entered heaven to receive his eternal reward for a full life and fruitful labors (Saturday, February 3, 2018), just 17 days shy of his 95th birthday. It happened very fast. He fell last Sunday, and five times since then. We’re grateful and sad.
I’m headed to Syracuse…just arrived in Dallas last night after 16 nights away. I wrote memories of him on my 15+ hour flight home, having just talked the exact streets and places of youthful life with him.
Please pray for all of us. We have our Christ’s Resurrection hope for His believers-followers…or we would be of all people most miserable!
I borrow from John 1:6: “There was a man sent from God. His name was John.”
