My father, Rev. Dr. C. Marvin Brads, Sr. passed away Saturday evening about 7:30.

He would have been 89 on the 28th of this month.

He was a great dad, and I miss him terribly.

I know I’m a lucky man.  There are few men my age who have been allowed the gift of having their Daddy this long.

He survived a great deal.

The Great Depression, World War II, 16 Presidents, five children, and parts of 10 decades.

He was  a great man, a great teacher, a great preacher, a loving husband for 71 years, and a great father.

I never doubted his love for me, and I never doubted his love for my mother.

I will be travelling this week once the arrangements are made. 

If things seem off this week, stick with me, I’ll be back.

UP

I know you’ll understand.
