PostSubject: for those of you not on my facebook.. Uncle William.   Sat Jan 30, 2010 10:25 pm

When I dwell on the great men of God from the past names like Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards come to mind, mighty speakers of the Word.. Today another name joined those ranks. William Mills, William was my grandmothers uncle, he seemed ancient to me from my first memorys of him. He faithfully attended Springfield Baptist and if memory serves me correctly was a Deacon. Uncle William always had a good word, a quick smile, and a piece of candy. He was a man of wisdom, but he never made you feel stupid. He relied on God and encouraged those around him to do the same. I have many memorys of the man, but there is one that shows the mans character. Sometime after my grandfather died Uncle William came to check on my grandma. Grandma invited Uncle William in but he steadfastly refused to cross the plain of the door way. I asked him why and he simply said "Someone might drive by and not know I'm her uncle and get the wrong idea." It seems old fashioned, it seems so out of place in todays world, but the man understood values and respect. I began watching him and trying to imitate him after that, he cared enough about someone else to not risk their reputation and that was the type of man I wanted to be. I don't know if I made it, but thats not the point here.. This old Earth grew darker yesterday, but "Enter in my good and faithful servant" was heard by one of the last few greats.



I miss him so much.

Sorry for your family's loss Brandon. Sounds as though you were very fortunate to have had him in your life.

Brandon,

It is never easy losing one that is near to us. "William is not gone, he has reached divine completion".
You have my condolences and sincerest hope he will have a peaceful rest.

I heard the old, old men say,
'Everything alters, and one by one we drop away.'
They had hands like claws, and their knees
were twisted like the old thorn-trees by the waters.

Brandon,
Just saw your post. Please accept my condolences. I had an Uncle Millard who was the same for me. He taught me all the important things just by the way he lived his life. I still miss him as I'm sure you will miss your uncle. Remember though, you are his legacy. As you continue in his footsteps you keep his memory and the things important to him alive.
God bless you and your family.
