  • My 6-year-old granddaughter, Layla, had seriously taken in the entire funeral service for her beloved Papa; the songs sung and the words spoken had touched her tender little heart. One minister told those present that Tom would want all of us to continue telling others about Jesus. The day after the funeral, Layla was playing at my house with a little boy who had been in church very little.  On his way home, he asked his stepmom, “Did God really make me?”

    She answered, “Why, yes he did! What makes you ask that?”
