Yesterday was my father's birthday. He would have been 75 if he were living. Even though we had a sometimes stressful relationship because of his alcoholism I loved him. And I know he loved me the best way he could.
Daddy (J.W. Eaton) is the handsome marine in the middle.
Daddy was born August 31, 1935 and passed away suddenly on July 8, 1992 at age 57. Every year I would make him a banana pudding (his favorite) for his birthday. I can't eat banana pudding without thinking of my daddy.
On May 28, 1999 I married the most wonderful peson I know! When I married him I gained all my beautiful grandchildren. We have twelve now, but at that time we only had seven. My wonderful grandson Cody was born August 31, 1991. God chose to take my daddy, but blessed me with another reason to celebrate!!
My handsome grandson Cody Vaughn USAF.
God gave me the same type of blessing when my mom passed away. Mom died Feb. 19, 2002 on my son's 17th birthday. So we celebrate his life as opposed to focusing on her death.
God is good
All the time
Trough the darkest night
His light will shine
