This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long!”
Our dear old Pop is with his savior. He just wasn’t happy on this earth without his dear Nadz. Peace at last…
As Deda is now with Jesus and Baba in heaven three things keep rolling over and over in my head. 1.) His inherent work ethic passed on to his children and grandchildren and I am sure greatgrands as well. 2.) His passionate prayers mostly in Russian and partly in English. 3.) His “I love you, I love you, I love you”’s always in 3’s. It is an honor to be your grandchild, I will love you forever.
Home to eternal glory! Your dad’s godly legacy lives on in his dear children and grandchildren! Oh to be present with the Lord! Love you all and share your sadness and joy!
So sorry to hear. What a blessed life. A man of God and a man of integrity. Our love to you and all the family.
Absent from the body, present with the Lord. But also absent from those who loved him and cherished his love for them. Joy, washed with tears. God be with you and your loved ones, Ellen (and Greg and family)
So happy that your dad is where he has wanted to be for a long time! He leaves behind an amazing legacy and will be missed by so many whose lives were touched by his love!
Much love to all the Bagdanovs! Heaven looks sweeter all the time especially now that sweet Moisi is there. Blessings. 💜✝😢
Always such a sweet, kind couple. They’re together again.
Your parents were so dear and such a blessing. They made a mark on my life. Always giving of their time to care for their family and still others. Full of hospitality and warming others in. So thankful for our good Lord who brings us to our new home. Praying for all of you Ellen Bagdanov Bayles, your family is a great reflection of the God your parents trusted. big hugs
Psalm 115:16. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints. I am happy for your dad, but I am sad for you. Love, Hugs and Prayers.
Praising God He is at Peace with Him & His Nadz, Praying for you and the whole family!,
Please let us know how we can help & support you! xoxo
Ellen…to you and all your family our thoughts are with you…..We know death is coming, but is still hard.
I’m so glad I got to meet them , such a sweet endearing couple, & all why I feel your loss, a tiny fraction of yours. Sweet Peace & Comfort to you & your family. Xoxo
Oh Ellen- I am so sorry. I know how he loved you and your family. And, how you loved him. My prayers are with all of you.
Love and condolences from Steve and I , to all your family.
Gone physically from this earth but now joyfully with his beloved. In that Heavenly Kingdom. What joy that brings to hearts, knowing the peace he now knows. Love
Praying for you and your family during this time, but knowing that your Pop is with his savior and rejoicing, is so awesome. May the Lord continue to comfort you and give you peace.
Promoted to glory!!
So many Saints have been swept up by Jesus Angel’s recently. And now your father and what an amazing reunion they are having. I’m sorry Ellen. You had great parents. **
Praying for you, Lana, and the whole family with love at this time of loss. And thankful with you for the rich legacy your dear parents left. How happy your dad must have been to walk through the gates and what a joy-filled reunion!
Oh Ellen. I’m so very sorry. Your parents have been such an inspiration for so many. Hugs to you and your family. 💗
Aching and rejoicing and praising God for the beautiful smiles, prayers and welcoming words I was privileged to enjoy, gifted by your precious Pop through more than 4 decades.
Love to you all.
I will always remember your parents with fond memories when we were in junior high and high school. They were always so dedicated to their family. I feel your pain Ellen. I know you take comfort in our Lord and the fact that your parents are reunited once again. 🙏🏻🙏🏻
I’m reminded of the words to the hymn that he likely walked down to at the crusade when he gave his life to Jesus…. Just as I am, without one plea,
But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bid’st me come to Thee,
O Lamb of God, I come! I come!
Ellen, hugs to you and your family! I know heaven had been your Dad’s desire! I look forward to meeting him in heaven one day. And I will always remember his love for the Lord, his family and jigsaw puzzle. Prayers and hugs to you and your family! 💕✝
At peace, and with your beloved mother. May eternal light shine on him and may he rest in peace. What a man your father was. What a legacy of faith and courage and determination he had left for you and your children!
Our family will be trying to figure out the best time for all of us to have Pop’s memorial service and funeral. There are a lot of us. The funeral will be at Rose Hills in Southern California which means some of us have to travel from Washington State and Texas. We’ll have to weed through all that is going on in our lives to choose what’s best for most.
