Thirty-four years ago

Thirty-four years ago this morning, my grandfather “Pop” Carter died of a heart attack, aged 75.

I remember well the early-morning call from my own father, and the events of that week.  I continued work for two days, then made my way to De Soto where the family was receiving visitors.

And at his funeral I sang “His eye is on the sparrow” and “It is well with my soul.”
