Grandpa John

I dislike “RIP”. When I see it on Facebook statuses or Twitter posts about certain celebrities who have passed away I can’t help but cringe. I realize that most of the time it is simply used to acknowledge a death and show sorrow over the loss of life. I don’t have a problem with the intent, but words mean something and, unfortunately, resting in peace is not what many of those are doing.

My “Grandpa John” died last Sunday. We all miss him but know he is with the Lord he served for most of his 86 years. While preparing for the funeral, my Aunt remembered that she had recorded this video of him back in August. He knew where he was going.

For the first time in many years he is resting in peace.
