Years ago I made this cloud painting from a photo I took over the back fence. As you can see there is an Eagle flying next to the cloud--miraculous indeed.
I am posting it tonight, in honor of Dan Becker. He was a veteran--a beautiful eagle of a man, who was strong, loyal, sweet, and kind. He was a dear, precious friend.
About an hour ago, Dan unexpectedly flew away to heaven. We have known the Becker family for a little over 25 years. He was one of Alan's best friends and was a wonderful part of all of our lives. He was a second Daddy to my children after their Dad left us three years ago.
Now Dan and Alan are together in heaven.
Please pray for Dan's wife, Judy, their family, friends, and for me and my children. We are grieving and hardly know how to get through this additional loss. Yet, there is comfort in knowing we will see them again. God is here, grieving with us--and we are not alone.
