25 September 2008
This past Sunday evening, Tara's father, Bob Kidd, passed away. He was born September 14, 1930 in Montreal, Canada. He and his wife Denny relocated to Martinez/Pleasant Hill, California in 1961. He worked 38 years for Shell Oil, rising to the position of Plant Maintenance Manger. He loved the outdoors and was a devoted fisherman, from trout in Alaska to large-mouth bass in Arizona.
He will be remembered as a faithful, loving husband and father. He was also a great role model for the younger men in his life.
He leaves behind his wife of 50 years, Denny, his two daughters, Tara and Melanie, and their families, including four grandchildren.
Thank you for your prayers over the past couple of years. We asked many of you to pray with us as we made the difficult decision to return to the States from New Zealand last year. And again, the past two months have been a real challenge, but God is good. Despite the difficulties and Bob's eventual passing, there have been evidences of God's presence, grace and mercy throughout these past days.
