  • The article I wrote for last week’s edition of The Anderson News told of my dad’s quiet battle with cancer and his testimony to the enduring grace of God in his life. Ironically, that was also the day I preached at his funeral. On Saturday, Oct. 11, my dad lost his six-year battle with cancer. We laid his body to rest last Wednesday, the day this paper ran that article wherein I wrote about the faith with which he faced his cancer, and his trust in the God who was the source and object of his faith.
