Bill the story teller!

When I found this picture I had to laugh! The stories that Bill would tell were delightful and captivating! The kids remember them to this day. He told the story of how our lab named Champ saved the kids from a bear attack and got clawed and that was how he got his scar! In actuality, he got Parvo and needed surgery.

A favorite prayer with the kids at night was a funny one!

"Now I lay me down to sleep,
with my Ford Bronco in the street.
If I should die before I wake,
please dear Lord put on the brake!"

He was funny and silly! I can't imagine the stories he would've told the grandkids!

LOL!!! I love it!! God must have needed a good story teller up in Heaven. And a good baseball coach, and someone to talk about the ecomomica issues in this world, and someone to talk about Gods plans to remodle Heaven, etc. Bill had all these God given talents. I miss him dearly. xoxo
