PaPa Ferguson~

My grandfather {PaPa Ferguson} was 98 years old and went home to Jesus today~
My mom is his only surviving child and he was the last living member of his family.
My grandmother passed away in 2005 after a beautiful life as a mom, teacher, and pianist
so I have chills imagining their reunion.
{They lived with Scott, the bigs, and I for 5 years when we were in Atlanta.}

He leaves behind 6 grandchildren, 
20 great grandchildren, 
and 1 great great grandson...
Amazing legacy!!!

He spent his life pastoring many churches and leading many souls to Christ.
I know when he arrived in Heaven today Jesus hugged him tight and said~
‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord."
Matt 25:21

The next few days will be full of family, friends, and memories...
tears and laughs...
remembering what he meant to each of us
and how we can continue his legacy in our own lives.
We love you PaPa and you will be missed SO very much!
We know you are LOVING your eternal life!!!
Thank you for the example you lived for Jesus...
We WILL see you again!
{Arrangements still pending}
