Ever since his first visit to Croatia with his son, Dedica Moore ("Grandpa Moore" - as we used to call him) has won the hearts of young and old. We recall him sitting patiently in church after services, ready to smile to everyone, pay a compliment, share a joke or a story or two from his past. It was his adventurous spirit and his sweet countenance that drew all of us to him. After that we were always glad to hear he was coming again and, upon his leaving, we would eagerly anticipate his return, for when asked if he was coming back he would always reply with a smile: "Oh, I'd love to!"But when he was no longer able to come, he would still keep in touch smiling to us through a screen of a videocall, with his almost traditional "You've got a pretty smile" statement.
We were given the opportunity to take part in a few brief moments of his life and we will always cherish them, remembering the words of our last goodbye to him, unaware then how soon they would become his sweet reality: What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see
When I look upon His face the one who saved me by His grace
When He takes me by the hand and leads me to the promised land
What a day, glorious day that will be!

We always thought so much of Harvey and Betty June. They are part of my very earliest memories. I was so thankful for him when my children were babies. We were pretty broke and wouldn't have had most of the pictures we have of them at that time if he hadn't been taking those monthly photographs in the nursery that first year. One month we missed church on that day so he came with his camera in hand to our home that week so we could have our picture of Jaree. That picture is one of my favorites. He was so good to visit when he came to Ardmore. I especially was grateful for his visits to my sister & brother-in-law, June and Bob when they were in the assisted living. I know Harvey is rejoicing in Heaven with all of the old timers and family up there. I look forward to that day myself. What a day that will be!!!! You all are in our thoughts and prayers during this time. Sending our love! God bless you all.
