Devin posted the following today on his own Facebook page:
Monday evening was by far one of the hardest days of my life. My daddy, my mentor, my well of wisdom, and my friend went home to be with Jesus.
Knowing where he is does occasionally bring a smile, but not having him here to see everyday or to call for advice already scares me so much. I cherish every memory that constantly comes to my mind. I love the fact that the past two years, he has seen my children practically every single day and attended church with us on Sundays.
This past Sunday night he got to come hear us, Ernie Haase and Signature Sound, in concert at our church where, to our surprise, Ernie called Karlyn up to sing a song as well.
Dad sat near the back (as always), smiling and singing along to pretty much every song. We had no idea what the next day would hold, but I am thankful for that memory as well as so many others.
After telling my kids the news about their Papa being in Heaven, Preston's response was..."now he gets to see Pepaw (Karen's grandfather) and Mossy (our doggie) and Pastor David." He continued on with others he knew were in Heaven. This time I had tears of joy.
My family and I covet your prayers in the coming days, weeks and months.
