A few days ago, a good friend of ours from church died. Today, Father's Day, was the funeral. Last night, the boys were all worked up and didn't want to settle down to sleep, so Dave took his sleeping bag in their room, and slept with them. He told them "Remember Larry, the "coffee guy" (because Larry let Trevor drink his coffe when he was at our house)?" And the boys said "Yeah!"
Dave said "well, he's in Heaven with Jesus now, which is good, but Ruth and Anita are very sad because they miss him.....So, boys, lets pray for Ruth and Anita, ok?"
So, Dylan went first and Dave said he prayed for almost a full minute, then he finally heard Amen!
Then Trevor said "Trevors turn dad!" and he prayed much the same as Dylan had. However, he stopped before the Amen, and said "hey dad" and Dave told him, "Trevor, honey, your praying, finish praying first." and Trev said "no, hey dad!" so Dave said "what?" And Trevor asked, "Is Larry doing this?" and in the dark of night, Dave heard his two little hands start to clap...................
After Dave wiped the tears from his eyes, he said "yes, honey, Larry is doing a lot of clapping right now."
