These are the things you are to teach and insist on. —1 Timothy 6:2
Everyone is remembered for certain things, and my Dad is no exception. Over the course of his long and fruitful ministry, he taught a number of different congregations many of the same themes—usually employing some of the same lines over and over again. A few of those quips became known as PF-isms, and on this Father's Day weekend, some of us will probably remember the last time we heard him say at least a few of them.
“I’m not going to ease up, let up, shut up or give up until I’m taken up. As a matter of fact, I’m just getting warmed up!”
PF lived what he taught. He didn’t just live by words like these—he died by them. It's been five years and we still miss you Pops.
But we wouldn’t wish you back for anything in the world.
