So many thoughts are running thru my head that it’s impossible to know what to write out. That he’s had a full life and that God has blessed him with days far past what the doctors have ever thought. That God’s mercy has allowed him additional time with his wife, kids and grandkids. That he’s had numerous opportunities to make peace with himself and his maker. That my friend may very shortly be losing his dad and as I think about that I think about my own dad.
We are such frail creatures and in the great expanse of time we are here for such brief moments. But that is only the here and now and this is not the eternity that awaits those of us who rest our faith in Christ. May the great Comforter be with my friend and his family.
Update: Mr. Crump passed away this evening. I’m going to miss his big toothless grin on Sunday mornings. Rest in peace, you fought the good fight.
I ran across this blog by his grand daughter. I never knew that Mr. Crump was a WWII veteran. Very interesting documentary videos made of him.
