Sunday Words of Encouragement September 16, 2012

I am in south Florida to attend a memorial 'party' today to celebrate my father's life.  Frank C. Snedaker, March 30, 1924 to July 3, 2012. He lived a strong life; you could say that he lived like Frank Sinatra's popular song 'I did it my way'.  My father's motto (and a couple of boat names) was "Never Give Up!"
For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity. - William Penn
My Dad left a wonderful legacy of family. 
This picture below was taken at a family gathering to celebrate his 87th Birthday in 2011.
He is in the center on the sofa with most (but not all) of his children (three of four) and grandchildren (eight of twelve) with spouses and eleven (of seventeen) great grandchildren.

I like this song for a positive view of death

Verses for Today:
1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.

Thank you all for your messages of sympathy in July. I am thankful that God blessed me with wonderful parents. My Dad will be missed but he left a wonderful legacy of living!


  1. Nice family pic and so happy for you to share with others the memories that linger. We are not meant to live on earth forever but there is a forever life and all we have to do is choose.
    Sometimes it seems to simple.

  2. What a beautiful legacy he's left behind. Thank you for sharing this. :)
