R.I.P. H. Morrey Cross

At 3am Sunday December 7th, my Dad peacefully passed away. I will be traveling to Canada today.

I have been overwhelmed by the number of comments and messages I have received. Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers.

You already have me beat. If it was my dad I'd be too crushed to post anything on a blog.

Very sorry to hear that. My thoughts are with you and your family.

I lost my Dad two years ago and it is a tough thing especially in the beginning. One of my favorite stories about my Dad was when I was about 8, my folks gave me a train set for Christmas. On Christmas Eve my Dad started laying out the track on the table telling me that Santa asked him to do it because when he arrived he wouldn't have enough time. Christmas morning I got up and there was my train setup all completed and my Dad had gotten us each a striped Lionel train cap to wear.

God Bless,

Jim

Dave, If you father was anything like you then we've lost a treasure for sure. I've had the fortune of attending several of your seminars. While you've always covered material in a thoughtful and fun approach, I think your warm and humble personality gives your audience the feeling we are all among friends. My prayers are with you and your family. God Bless.

Hello Dave, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I will definitely keep you and your family in my prayers. My dad passed away two months ago, so I can imagine how painful this must be for you. He lived and died in Trinidad in the Caribbean. May the Lord continue to give you strength and peace.

Chris Barnes said...

Dave -

We've met and talked a couple of times when you come to Richmond, Va. You're a good guy and I'm sure a lot of that can be contributed to your father and upbringing. It's terrible to loose a parent - compounded by the season. You have my deepest sympathy as does your children who've lost a grandfather. God speed on your journeys - I wish you and yours well.

God Bless you,
Chris

Thoughts and prayers with you. My dad passed away 6 years. It's still really hard at Christmas for me.

However he was suffering from cancer and now that pain is gone and I wouldn't wish him back for the world now.
