Dad’s service was on Saturday, July 18th at The Rock Church in Zachary. We played the video below at the end of his service.
My brothers did a wonderful job speaking about Dad, and Asher pointed out how this song (Pachelbel’s Canon in D) was Dad’s favorite. Asher remarked how it starts slow, gets busy in the middle and then slows down at the end…. and how that is very much a parallel of our lives.
That whole day is a blur, and I don’t have any pictures from his service, but some things that were special touches for Dad were including his ‘sticker box’ full of stickers at the guest book table. Dr. Eisworth’s sticker box is well-remembered by the children of Zachary who are now all grown.
We also displayed some of his favorite mementos and handiwork on a table at the front. Dad was skilled with his hands both as a doctor and in creating needlework and tatting.
