He served God and country – a young, married chap.
Many years passed before I sat in his lap.
Still with twinkling eye and short, curly locks,
Grandpa obeyed God's will and tended His flock.
Studying the Bible for hours each day,
Keeping God's sheep from going astray,
Visiting the sick and knocking on doors,
Were normal to him --- not added chores.
My favorite memory will always be
The way he prayed so earnestly.
He held Grandma's hand as his voice changed in tone.
Together they bowed before God's holy throne.
An Alzheimer-like illness took most of his mind
Stealing some memories and moments of time.
It stood powerless to reach the depths of his heart.
Sixty-four years ago he said “til death do us part”.
Seeing faithful souls finish the race
Makes me want to pick up the pace.
I long for heaven more and more and more
As friends and family step through that door.
See you in heaven, Grandpa.
We love you!!!

Grandpa, we are going to miss you so much! Thank you for your wonderful example to all of us and for the way you have lead our family all these years. Thank you for introducing us to Jesus and for introducing us about baseball. I'll always route for the Cardinals because of you! It's hard to imagine life without you but look forward to seeing you again in heaven one day. We'll take good care of Grandma for you. Love you forever and ever, Lynnette
