He would like to let you know that his work here is done. He received a call, a sort of an offer you can't refuse, for an appointment from which He will not be returning. This assignment comes with a huge sign-on bonus, a reunion with God and Jesus, and family and friends he has not seen in a long time. As he would say it was a beautiful program, a God plan, made up of progress, not perfection. Memory's of Dod when he stepped into a new life became a Christian and active in serving others, His smiling way and pleasant face a pleasure to recall, He had a kindly word for each and all. God saw Dod's road was getting rough and hills were hard to climb, so he closed his weary eyelids and whispered peace be with you it is time to come home. Peacefully sleeping, resting at last, the world weary trouble and trials are past. In silence he suffered, in patience he bore, till God called him home to suffer no more. For those of you who knew Dod, you will not be surprised that I did not want a funeral, just a simple celebration of life. It will be held at his church, Destiny Christian Center, 255 Bell Street Reno, on November 12th at 3:00 pm.However, I would ask each and every one of you who read this obituary as I looked over Dods e-mails over the last years to consider the following: per Dod (1) Take great joy in each day you live. (2) Hold the ones you love dearly and tell them why they are special. Life is short. Take each day with renewed joy and find great pleasure in the simple things of life! Like a good laugh, a smile or a hug. There is a road map for living that leads to a spiritual awakening and beyond. Take each day one day at a time.
