Arrangements

I have been receiving some phone calls in the last couple of days about some interested in rejoicing with our family of my grandfather's homegoing. If you are in the area, here are the arrangements if you would like to join us: Tuesday, November 29, 2005 Visitation @ Spry Funeral Home (Athens, AL) 6:00-9:00 p.m. Wednesday, November 30, 2005 Memorial Service @ Spry Funeral home (Athens, AL) 1:00 p.m. Thursday, December 1, 2005 Graveside Service and Burial in Brookhaven, MS 3:00 p.m. I just wanted to say thanks again for your prayers, phone calls, and emails during the past week. One of the blessings I have had in the last couple of days is pouring through thousands of typed and handwritten sermons my grandfather wrote over the years as well as the beloved hymns he loved to sing. All the more I see what manner of man he was and how blessed we as a family were to have him for all these years. Tomorrow, by God's grace, I will speak on behalf of him (something which he would not want me to do) and his Savior who transformed that poor, little Mississippi boy on the farm into a great man of God. May the Lord find pleasure in the things said and done, and even now, may he continue to bring sheaves into the kingdom of God by this farmer's faithful sowing.
