Del & Sue, Allen, TX — Married 1953

Del:
I’m ready to go.  I don’t have any problem with that.  I know where I’m gonna be when I leave here… but the sad part would be the ones who are left behind.  So, yeah.  If I had my preference, I have said for many, many years, "I hope Sue goes before I go."  The reason I hope she goes before I do, so she won’t have to be sad.  Let me be the one to be sad.  And what God’s plan is for our life, we don’t know.

But we do know this:  that He won’t, as I’ve said, put more on us than we can bear.  We have a good friend down in East Texas, lives down on the lake.  Big ol’ Cajun boy.  We love him dearly, and he’s got a way of saying that, he says, "the Lord won’t put more on your wagon than you can haul."
