Photo tribute to my father-in-law

This past year we were saddened to lose my beloved father-in-law, Christian Robert Reusser. He lived up to his name before passing away in October from a suspected heart condition.

He was a kind, energetic Christian man who lived to be age 92. He was fairly alert to the end and rode his stationery bicycle within the past year for several minutes each day. Good example to all of us!

With the loss of my dad in 2005 we now have no fathers to show our love to. While that makes us sad, we are so appreciative of the fact that our dads loved us and showed it in so many ways. Today through Father’s Day I’m highlighting each of our dads with treasured photos, concluding with photos of my children’s dad – my husband – on Sunday. I hope those of you who knew our dads will enjoy the visual reminders of these Hoosier born and bred men who loved their families, the land and their mutual community of Bluffton, Indiana. Leave a comment if you like.

The father of a righteous child has great joy; a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him.  Proverbs 23:24

Happy Father’s Day!
