Well done, good and faithful servant
"His lord said to him, Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things: enter you into the joy of your lord." Matthew 25:23
Grandpa served the Lord for over 80 years. He was a minister, husband, father to his children and his grandchildren and a beloved friend to many. His quiet manner belied the humor and strength that dwell beneath. Grandpa could tell a story that would have you laughing until you cried but taught you something at the same time.
He shaped the man that I love. He joined us in Holy Matrimony 15 years ago and provided wisdom since that September day I first met him 17 years ago.
I will miss his smile, his sly humor, wisdom and courage. But his work here was done and now he lives in our hearts forever.
