A Note from The Kendrick Family.....

Forward to 2014......Dad's been gone now three years. Not a day goes by that we don't miss him! This blog was created to update you about his sickness, then his death, but now with our tribute to him. For 18 months we have been capturing and digitally recording our emotions and sincere desire to honor Dad. Yes, he has gone on the be with Jesus, but his love of music lives on in his family.

Longing For Home

Dad asked to see his kids and older grand kids this afternoon, said he was ready to go home to see Jesus. He asked for us to let him go....he said Paul said it was better. We have had a very emotional day, but we let him know we'll leave it in the hands of God who is the author and finisher of our faith. He was content with that. Said he does not desire to do the chemo on the first of December, and will not hardly eat or drink. Please continue to to pray for our family. We need strength....and so does Dad.

  5. Oh, no! This breaks my heart. It is so hard to accept this, and yet, I honor and respect this decision. Be strong, sweet family. My kids love their "Uncle Randy" so much, and he will always be a dear and precious friend to us. Praying for all of you.

  6. Randy and Linda and all the kids!

    Words cannot describe the sadness we feel and the helplessness. Though we're far away our hearts, prayers and concern is there right beside you, and more importantly, our good God is there. We love you Randy and have many fond memories of good times. We'll keep praying!! Robert and Sheila Condren

  7. I know how difficult these times are, but there is comfort in knowing he has fought a good fight, finished the course, kept the faith: and henceforth there is laid up for him a crown of righteousness. My prayers are with you all even though miles separate us. Sis Ramona

  11. To Elder Kendrick:

    I count it an honor to have met you last year. I only wish I had met you years earlier. You have always been kind and gracious to me and my only regret is that the never got to share that cup of coffee.

    Praying for you.

    To the family, praying for God's strength during this time.

    Love and prayers,
