uncle carson

Many, many wonderful words spoken and sung yesterday among the apples and strawberries at Carson Moyer's funeral. "How can I keep from singing?" and the Ghanaian song "in your sickness, your sufferings, your trials and pains he is with you all the time"... the parable of the seed and the soil... John's remembrances of his father's "small footprint" on this earth in his care for the land ("Moyer's Garden Patch") and even choice of casket (no chemical finish, wooden pegs instead of metal fixtures)...

I was especially moved by John's reminder that "when you see someone whose "footprint" seems small, he may be doing the work of God."

Indeed, Uncle Carson. Thank you.
