It's not what you take when you leave the world behind you,
It's what you leave behind you when you go. (Three Wooden Crosses)

My Uncle Wally left a wonderful legacy behind in the form of four Christian children who, I am sure, are raising their children in Christian homes. I remember him praying with me when we got from home from church where I confessed that I was not sure of my salvation. I know in my heart there were others he lead to the Lord.

Along with all of you, I am going to miss him but it is wonderful to know that he has heard these words "Well done, thou good and grateful servant." and that we will see him again. Love you all!

Beth (Carpenter) Hoag
