Honoring Our Papas

My grandfather has spent many years doing for others whether in the church, school or community. In all these areas he has had other men and women who have been beside him serving as well. Last night Papa and one of his coherts were honored by a local community group they had both been a part of for a long time. Papa and Mr. Bloomingburg have a lot in common. Both men love the church, FHU and our community. Both men lost their wives this summer. Both men have two children - all 4 went to school together and live in the community. Both men (I know I am being partial with this statement) deserved to be honored. It was a lovely night of fellowshipping with new leaders of the community group as well as those who had served with these men. Special friends and family also came in for the night. Just another way to honor people while they can enjoy the honor! Thank you, Papa Whittle and Papa Bloomingburg, for all you have done! We love you!
