For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.


Another member of the Greatest Generation was lost yesterday. My grandpa passed away early Wednesday morning. He was a World War II soldier who fought in the Philippines, earned the purple heart, and along the way was asked to be General MacArthur's personal bodyguard (but turned the job down to stay with his troops). After the war, he married my grandma, built a home and farm and raised 4 wonderful children, including my mom. He was the kindest, sweetest man I've ever met.

Right about now I think my mom is showing him around up there, introducing him to all of her friends. They are two peas in a pod, two completely selfless individuals. The world is short two angels.
