R.I.P.

-
(Actually, I don't think he's resting at all; I think he's in Heaven praising the Lord.)

In my life, there were four men who I felt privileged to know and after whom I tried to pattern my adult life. The first was my late father. The second was a distant neighbor - the father of a fellow that I went to school with, and an amazingly gifted fellow at making even machinery from scratch, if he chose. The third was a Baptist preacher who always had a kind word and a joke. The fourth was another Baptist preacher - the one who married my wife and I, in fact. He was a true gentle soul.

All were Christians, of course. Two (maybe three) served in the military. All were good, honest, kind gentlemen. It was my great honor to know them each of them. The first three have been gone several years (my father for 34). The fourth one died this past week at age 95. We'd stayed in email communication until a couple years ago, when I suspect it got beyond him. He lived several states away, so there was no visiting to be done. His accomplishments were many and his obituary long. Mainly, though, he left a lot of folks behind who were better for knowing him.

There aren't nearly as many men like that as there used to be. There never has been enough of them, but today, they seem few and far between. Two things I know - my life has been the richer for knowing them, and my character has been the better for striving to be at least a little bit like them (in my old age, at least). I miss each one of them, but I know that I'll see them all again soon, in part because of their influence.

I praise the Lord for such men. Copyright 2018
