Honoring Dad.

It’s been my deepest honor to be the one to get to update everyone on my father’s home going process. It’s been a very long week. It feels almost like a lifetime. We all have laughed, cried, praised, and prayed. A lot! We have been lifted up from so many. We have seen God’s goodness, mercy and grace first hand in every moment. I hope to soon share more on all God is doing and how he has been stretching me in my faith and lovingly shaking me to my core.

But for now I will be focusing on the next steps of dad’s homegoing. We will be back in Florida soon. It is the families wish there be no visitors just yet. We want to plan a memorial service that fits what my dad would like. That being said it won’t be for a little while. As soon as we have those details though I will post them here.

I do have something that you can do now. If you have a story of how my dad impacted your life would you please email them to me? I plan on putting something together just for my mom and immediate family. The days and nights to come will be hard. But stories of my dad make us smile and remember all the good times. My email is ten4Brock@gmail.com if you have a picture that would be great. Just attached the word document and in the subject of the email write “Bill’s impact.”

The http://www.GoFundMe.com/helpbillperry is covering the medical bills, getting my father home and the final arrangements. We are so blessed and humbled by God providing so generously through his people.

Please continue to praise our great Savior! He is still good! He is providing! He saved my father from death so now he can enjoy life externally! Praise him!

I leave you with my father’s life passage. It’s Psalms 112

Praise the LORD. [2] Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who finds great delight in his commands.2His children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.3Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.4Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for the gracious and compassionate and righteous man. [3]5Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely, who conducts his affairs with justice.6Surely he will never be shaken; a righteous man will be remembered forever.7He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.8His heart is secure, he will have no fear; in the end he will look in triumph on his foes.9He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor, his righteousness endures forever; his horn [4]will be lifted high in honor.10The wicked man will see and be vexed, he will gnash his teeth and waste away; the longings of the wicked will come to nothing.

  1. We so appreciate you keeping us updated, Stephanie. We understand completely that your family will need time before any visitors and we want to respect that. Please let us know when it would be an appropriate time to help out with meals. I’m sure there are many who would love to help out in this way, but we don’t want to overwhelm you. Praying for God’s bountiful grace!
