A Family Tribute - Van Pringle


Sympathy Flowers My dad passed away on December 30, 2001. My mom and I were with him when he died, and that means more to me thatn anything I could have said or done. He was always there for me through my most difficult times (and bad decisions) and loved me anyway. When he was going through his most difficult time I was there for him. He asked me to look out for my mom, and I was able to be with her when he passed, which made it something that only the three of us share.

My dad's favorite verse is Matthew 7:12:

"...whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them...".

The Golden rule is how he lived his life, and how he will always be remembered.

On Christmas day he called me into his bedroom where he had been laying, lifted his head, looked me right in the eyes, and said, "I'm going to die." Now I realize there is no better gift that he could have given me this Christmas. In his own way, he let me know that he was content and he was going to be okay. He wanted me to know so that I could begin to grieve. We both cried together that day.

The funeral is over, that flowers are beginning to fade, but I still hear his voice and am so thankful that God is letting me have a moment in time to reunite with him in my heart. I miss you dad, I love you.

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
