My dad was a wonderful man with a heart as big as he was. He loved God and was passionate about spreading the good news of redemption through the acceptance of Jesus's sacrificial death. He used to share his salvation story with inmates at the Cumming jail as a Gideon. He studied hard to become a Methodist lay leader and relished the opportunity to substitute preach and share his passion for the Lord. He lived for growing food in the Cartecay Methodist Church food pantry garden, the planning of which carried him through the cold winter months. When he had been reduced to walking on canes, he still walked behind the rototiller in the garden, feeling, even in his disabled state, that he had to justify his place on earth. He preached a monthly service at the Ellijay nursing home until his voice lost its timber. His family is so proud of him and are comforted by the knowledge that his Lord, Jesus Christ, will say to him on judgement day, "Well done, my good and faithful servant." We will forever miss you, Daddy.
Dear family, I express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your dear loved one and I know it’s so difficult to bear. But know that your Heavenly Father understands your pain and He cares. He extends a hope to each and everyone and that hope is that you will see your loved one again. John 5:28, 29; Isaiah 25:8a
