One man...

Last Sunday a dear member of our family went to be with Jesus

Before he went he did a few things:
He married the love of his life and faithfully cherished her for over 65 years...
He had two children, a boy and a girl, who he relished in...
He saw his boy and his girl marry and have boys and girls of their own...
He taught these grandchildren many things, and glowed when he talked about them...
He cheered as some of these grandchildren grew up, married and had children of their own...
He loved his great-grandchildren and delighted in them...
He started life as one man, and ended with a family of 18 and counting...

He lived a legacy, and left us all with countless memories and stories to entertain ourselves with in the days and months ahead.
He was well loved and will be greatly missed.
We love you Pop-pop, can't wait to see you again someday in glory:)
