A very moving video segment. Thanks Wade.

Here are some of the posts Wade wrote about his maternal grandparents.

Wade, long time no comment but man I am glad to weigh in here! What a wonderful demonstration of the grace of life promised in 1 Peter 3:7 that has surely been manifest in the life of your maternal grandparents. This tribute moved me to tears as I beheld the grace and glory of a life well lived (and still being lived!) Thanks for sharing! Great sermons often times come in surprising forms...

Wade, Thanks for sharing. Though I never had the joy of meeting your grandmogther, I do remember your grandad Fred Cherry. He held two revival meetings in my home church in the '50's and in in my first church out of seminary in the 60's, I invited him to come and conduct a meeting for us. I have many precious and funny memories of your grandad! God be Praised in both their lives! Billy Usery, Clarksville, AR
