Dad's funeral service was so beautiful. It lasted over 2 hours. Many people attended the service. Rev Tom Calk did a wonderful job on the service. Also, right before the service Rev Harry Sewell showed up. He was a good friend of Dad's from Dallas, TX. We had contacted him about Dad's passing, but we didn't expect for him to show up. We then asked him to say a little about Dad. He also did a wonderful job. Dad's nephew, Gary Landers delivered the eulogy. There was also a lady from The Lighthouse church that sang the songs (I'm sorry I don't remember her name). She sang one called "Wish you were here" by The Kingsmen and it was beautiful.
Afterwards, the members of The Lighthouse church had a dinner at the church for our family. They are a wonderful group of people.
