Grandpa goes home!!

Praise the Lord, Grandpa Carlson has finally gone to meet him. His pain and earthly life are over and he is sitting at the right hand of God. He was a man who lived for God and his Faith and that was evident in everything he did. His whole life was ministry and so for him the words Paul wrote in Philippians 1:21- "For me, to live is Christ and to die is gain." are truth. We on earth are left to feel the loss of such a wonderful man.He will be missed as a man, a father, a grandfather, a friend, a mentor, a pastor, a missionary, and so many other roles he played throughout his life. He and my grandmother, who preceded him into heaven, have left behind an incredible legacy. I am sure unmatched by most. Grandpa Wes lived to welcome the 25th great-grandchild in his legacy, our nephew Jonah Wesley Carlson. What a life he lived and we will miss him dearly. We look forward to the day we will dance again with them in heaven. Please pray for our family in this time of loss as God grants us peace and comfort. Thanks so much!
