I wanted to share this special memorial service that was held yesterday at The Cathedral of Hope in Dallas, TX that was specifically focused on “Remembering Our Saints”.
About 1 month ago I contacted the pastor of this church and sent a photo of Terry and asked that he be included in the annual service that they do around “All Saints Day” to honor all those who have departed this earth over the past year. It is a very beautiful service and I hope that you can take the time to enjoy the entire service that lasts about 1 and 1/2 hours. It is very impressive and a real tear-jerker.
This is the church that Terry and I attended each Sunday when we lived in Dallas, TX and is the place that Terry in his earlier years got a lot of comfort from when he was struggling with life (even prior to me meeting him). It was instrumental in helping him to better cope with life and all its struggles.
As you know, Terry did not want any formal funeral service after he passed away, but I felt inclined to at least ensure that he was included in this wonderful tribute. In essence this becomes Terry’s Memorial Service. (Sorry Terry…I had to do this!)
As I write this blog to you all my eyes fill with tears just thinking about Terry and his passing. This is one of those days where I an a little down, but I am comforted to watch this tribute as it helps to bring some more closure.
To see the service, just goggle, Cathedral of Hope, Dallas, TX and on their home page look for worship services and click on the one for November 5th, “Remembering Our Saints”.
If you can’t watch the entire service, you can fast forward till around the 1 hour, 10 minute point when the names of the deceased are called out by the pastor in alphabetical order and just listen for the calling of Terry Glenn Tidwell. After all the names are called, then immediately following this you will then see each photo come up once again in alphabetical order until you finally see Terry’s smiling and familiar face once again.
We love you Terry and we miss and love you greatly.
Appreciate you taking the time to honor Terry and to remember him thru such a beautiful service. It is a real tribute and I know that Terry would appreciate that you took the time to witness this beautiful service.
I can hear him saying to you all like he did in all his blog writings “I appreciate each and every one of you and have a wonderful day”.
Thanks all and have a great week.
