A Thousand Memories part 3: Gone Too Soon

Everyone's talking about the weather and the weather has been changing fast, but you would never have guessed what happened while we were in California at Disneyland. On the third day of our vacation for Lincoln's Make-a-Wish trip, we were expecting rain in the forecast, but in the middle of the night in the most magical place on earth, there would be snow flakes falling over our hotel room.

Before I tell the whole story I want to share the last few pictures that I was able to take during the unexpected final day of our vacation of a Thousand Memories.

A Thousand Memories...
...that will never fade.

Lincoln's wish was granted in Disneyland and a Thousand Memories were made that will last a lifetime, but one such memory will be of his Papa Bob who suddenly and unexpectedly passed away while on the trip with us. In the middle of the night, the snow in Heaven began to fall as the angels of God welcomed Pastor Bob Swope into his eternal home above. Bob always loved the snow because it reminded him as a child that God would never leave us or forsake us. He was our Heavenly Father and would always take care of us if we were good, bad, sick or in need. Today our family has suffered a great loss and as we have always asked you to Pray for Lincoln, please keep my beautiful wife Jenny and her mom Mary in your thoughts and prayers as well. This has truly been a life altering event for us all and we will miss Bob like a child who misses Disneyland after the very first visit feels like its gone too soon.
