My father, Wilson Holloway, passed away 10/6/07 at 7:00pm with a smile on his face. God's Holy Spirit was with us. There were tears of sorrow and of joy. Sadness due to the loss of a husband, father and grandfather, and joy because he finally made it home. I know there was rejoicing in heaven because another saint had made it home.

Dad was truly blessed in the fact that even though he suffered he was given 7 years after initial diagnosis of his cancer. I also am blessed to have a father like him. He truly was a saint.

Continue to keep us in your prayers for we have a long road to go for I am sure we will grieve his loss for quite some time.

Mom and Dad's church has been such a great support and provided us with food and drinks, but not only that, they supported us with being here during this time and praying for us.

I would like to leave you with my dad's favorite chorus.

Fear thou not for I am with thee
be not dismayed for I am thy God
I will strengthen thee, yeah I will
help thee. Yeah I will uphold thee
with the right hand of my rightousness.

Bev, I will be praying for you and your family. I recently lost my brother to cancer and truly understand the joy mixed with grief.
