Grandfather's Funeral

Today at 2 p.m. will be the funeral for my 91 year-old grandfather. When he passed away early Tuesday morning, I felt led to offer my assistance to my mother and her sister to lead (or officiate) his funeral. They accepted my offer and I've about completed an honoring tribute to his life. As I've reflected back of the years of my grandfather's life, it is amazing how much this man accomplished. It is amazing the legacy he left.

Proverbs 13:22 says "A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children" and he left an incredible inheritance in the way he lived his life.

I intend to follow his examples and leave behind a legacy that will inspire my family, too.

Great sentiments. I believe it's more about what you ARE than what you HAVE. "He who has gone, so we but cherish his memory, abides with us, more potent, nay, more present than the living man." -Antoine de Saint-Exupery
