Wow, your descriptions of your preacher grandfather are so vivid and the story of his death is fascinating. You've had a lot of heart-ache in losing young family members. I appreciate your use of "mantle" in this and what it signifies. I think you do wear a "mantle" now, it's just different than your grandfathers. I enjoyed reading testimony of where the Lord has led you and this tribute to your grandfather.
"I realized if I’m where God wants me there’s no place else to be."

Amen to that.

We all have our purpose and our calling from God. I'm glad that he showed you yours.

Thank you for sharing this uplifting and inspiring story.
