Our family was so privileged to be a part of his Amos's life during the last 15 years or so. He was a strong and remarkable man of faith who loved his family. As a proud and committed dad and grandpa, he loved spending time with them and took great joy in their lives and accomplishments . His big, contagious laugh and smile lit up the room! I soon learned Psalm 119 was his favorite psalm and can still hear him loudly quoting all 176 verses from memory. More importantly, the God's message in Psalm 119 was written on Amos's heart and he knew God's love and grace. He shared that love with our family and we are forever grateful.

I grew up around Amos as he lived with my folks for a while in my late teens. He immediately became a part of our family, often coming to Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner after he'd spent time with his own family. We invited him to say the prayer over my husband and I at our wedding in 2007. I will fondly remember Amos for his jolly laugh, big hugs, love for Jesus, heart for his family and kids/grandkids and detailed stories that went on and on. Amos cared deeply about his family and was committed to being the best father and grandfather to them. I loved to give Amos small gifts for his birthday and Christmas. He would ooh and awe over the them and bring him great delight. Amos was a walking story of the redemption and love of his Savior, Jesus Christ. I will miss him dearly, but I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that he's rejoicing in heaven, finally face to face with his Father. I know I'll see him again one day. Until then, rest easy, Amos, you are loved and forever in our hearts.
