Bridget and Andrew McCain joined their father’s funeral service with these Bible verses amid the hymns and featured speakers.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 (Read by Bridget McCain)

3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

3:2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted.

2 Timothy 4:6-8 (Read by Andrew McCain)

4:6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.

4:7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
