    I have been to many funerals but I really wished Daddy had seen how much he was loved.   I never ever saw a funeral like that !!!   Traffic was stopped for miles ..I remember so little but one would have thought a huge celebrity had died..  He died last April. In my opinion.. one did.

    He reminded me of this song as well as this incident actually happened in 64.  A man walked into the church and spit in his face.  See My daddy was not predjudice or a bigot.  My mother wanted to fight...Daddy handled it.  His way.

      the man who spit and took a swing at Daddy while he
      was in the stand.   it was during a conference under Roberts Rule of Order and Daddy had called the man out of order and deacons split on a decision ( kinda like Washington) Majority of business ruled and Daddy presided over the conference and one extreme person who wanted to override the majority got upset.Walked right up and spit on him and took a swing.  Daddy stood strong and told him he would have to answer to a higher power than him and he wouldn't budge from his position and the man was escorted out of church.  Nowdays Daddy could have been shot.  As crazy as some wingers are.
