Charles Johnson is my grandpa to which Im very thankful. He had the keenest of wits. He loved to tease people. He would often call me his favorite grandson; not to demean his other grandchildren, but to remind me that I was his only grandson. He was a very thoughtful man. He would always remember to call me on my birthday. While my grandpas body is dead, we know from the Triune God that though the body may die, the soul lives and the body awaits the resurrection when God the Son, Jesus Christ, returns to judge the living and the dead. The hope of Christs church is the promise of Christ that all who trust in Him alone for the forgiveness of all their sins, which He has purchased and won for all peoples by His innocent suffering, death and physical resurrection that they will receive eternal life and salvation. Since we are all beggars, we pray in all times, but most especially at the death of a loved one, the Kyrie Eleison, the ancient prayer taught to us by the Canaanite woman in Matt. 15:22 and the Ten Lepers in the holy gospels of St. Matthew 15 and St. Luke 17. Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord mercy. Trey Doak

Judy, Sorry to here about your father. Always really liked him. He was out surveying property for the family a couple years ago. Had a short but nice visit. Give my condolences to the family. Dan Osborn
