Spring Flowers At Centerville Church Are In Honor Of My Friend And Brother-In-Law, Jim Dunaway


What a beautiful spring!

Last fall, at the end of the bulb planting season, I bought a ton of spring bulbs for 50% off and on several chilly November days, I planted them at the front of Centerville Methodist Church. I planted the bulbs in honor of my brother-in-law, Jim Dunaway and at the four year anniversary of his passing, April 20, they were blooming gloriously. I’m glad they turned out so beautifully and that the members of the church are very happy with their appearance. Last week when I had help from a friend I took these pictures and made a slide show video. I used an organ rendition of Bach’s “Jesu Joy Of Man’s Desiring” as the accompaniment. I posted the video on you-tube along with this description:

My brother-in-law, Jim Dunaway, passed away on April 20, 2009, at age 72 — a great loss to our family and to the many who knew him as their pastor and friend. Jim served over 50 years in the Methodist ministry, and after his official retirement he served as an assistant minister at Centerville Methodist Church. The spring bulbs making these wonderful flowers were planted in honor of Jim, in appreciation of the optimism, love and joy he shared with everyone who knew him. Late in the afternoon, on April 21, 2013, there was slight breeze ending a beautiful day and these little flowers were clapping their hands.
