My dad, brave, tough, big, strong, hard working, slowed down in his late seventies only by heart disease, spent the last years of his life mostly at home, taken care of by my mother. After he was gone she recalled what a sweet time it was for them both. While he was still here and at home, he told me what he did. He read the Bible and prayed for his family.
His prayers continue to be answered: God showing love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments. Exodus 20: 6.
