Digger

Digger was DD, DS#1, DS#2's ag teacher. He was a gentle giant of a man who touched so many lives - he helped DD to win her state FFA office, many state contests, and DS#1 too. Today they held his celebration of life - you see he'd been fighting cancer for the last 18 months. He was married and had two children - a girl - 7th grader, and a boy - 9 years old. He fought this stinking disease - about 2 weeks ago they sent him home saying, "there's nothing more we can do for you." He didn't want to die in his home - didn't want his kids remembering that, so he stayed with his mother in law.

Dig's Life Tips for a Better Exit

Tell those you love that you love them!!! Use the opportunities Jesus brings to share His love!

Until we meet again, may the good Lord take a likin' to ya'!
