My wife said after church one Sunday that her and David had decided to have a weekly Bible study at Davids house and I would be attending. For the first three weeks David spoke of nothing but Israel and my wife had enough and quit. I inherited David at that point and the first year we had heated discussions over doctrine and other issues. I learned a long time ago that you can tell the depth of a persons friendship by how heated a conversation you can survive. For the next five years we spoke on the phone almost every night. We thought we had fixed most of the worlds problems through our discussions. In the fullness of time David was in and out of nursing homes frequently over a two year period. He called me once from Covington Court and said he needed my help. When I got there he handed me some large clippers and said he needed his toe nails clipped. In my heart I was put out but "the comforter" came to me in those moments and said "good job". David then had four or so years when he was largely problem free and we would go to lunch regularly and for his haircuts and such. Now; in the fullness of time my friend has gone home. He will be missed and remembered fondly.

So many great memories with PaPa. From the life lessons and skills, to the inspiration of his legacy. He was a man of God with a servant's heart, always putting others above self. He had the determination to complete any project he set his mind to. Truly blessed to have known my grandfather for 37 years and be inspired to continue his work in helping others. The world is truly a better place for his sacrifices and impact on countless lives.

This article in the Entertainment Fort Smith magazine captures a few highlights on the success and legacy of my PaPa Webb.
