I have a lot I want to share on my blog about my dear old Pop and his story. He was known as…Moisey (Moses/Moisi/Morris) Timofeyovich Bagdanov. For a time I will post part of my Pop’s story on Tuesdays. Every Tuesday was my day to call Pop and touch bases with him. For this first Tuesday I’m starting with our goodbyes to him on this earth. This was his viewing at Rose Hills on Thursday evening July 19, 2018.
Many friends and family were able to come and go over a 4 hour period. It was good to see and catch up with those we haven’t seen since our mom’s funeral.
The casual service ended up being a hymn sing with requests from the friends and family who came. Our brother in law, Len, led the singing. It was so good to sing those great old hymns with true words that resonate today.
Some of our girls and nieces.
My sister Lana read this portion from the Bible that was referenced on this puzzle our Pop put together in his last years. These are his hands.
Exodus 15:2 The Lord is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation;
this is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God and I will exalt him.”
Next Tuesday will be a photo overload from the funeral service, graveside service and reception.
