Adieu to California

Our dear old Pop’s signature farewell to us. He always said it three times. A friend of our niece’s left this sign on her doorstep the day after our Pop’s funeral. Such a sweet thoughtful gift. I think all of us will be having these signs made soon.

Heading home to continue to empty out our home. We’ve got 7 days left. Thank you once again for your prayers and encouragement. I really do appreciate all of you.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. So many changes in your lives over the past two years! But the heritage from your pop, and God’s great gift of your granddaughter travel with you. God bless you!

  2. What a wonderful sign and beautiful memory that fills your hearts and surrounds you all with Pop’s love.

  3. A lovely way to say good bye!!
    Good luck with getting the last things packed and moved.
    Still trying to sell our house! It’s been 6 weeks already with only 1 viewing.

  4. What a treasure your niece has been gifted with. I can understand why everyone will want one. Praying for you, my sweet friend. xx

  5. What a sweet gift you received. My dad always say’s “Love You More” Good luck with the rest of your packing.

  6. The hymn sung at your Pop’s funeral was perfect, the family pictures showed what a wonderful legacy he left …. and how wonderful the sign … . I would like to be that kind of friend — one who knows her friends well enough to choose the perfect meaningful gift!

    Best wishes on your move; look forward to reading about it when you get time to catch your breath (which would probably take me a month!)

    • Sallie, thank you. Yes, a good friend is a treasure for sure. I hope I’ll be in our new place before summer is over!!

  7. How awesome! Yes, I think every single one of your homes needs that sign!

    I love the tradition of saying it three times. I might have to adopt it.
