It was a fall Saturday afternoon in Alief, TX and my teenage son and I were pared up with John doing door-to-door evangelism in a neighborhood beside Southwest Bible Church. We climbed the steps and knocked the door of one particular home and a man about John's age opened the door. John explained that we were from the church down the street and asked the man a leading question to see if a conversation might open up. “No,” said the man rather gruffly, “I'm not much interested in the Bible or religion,” and he started to close the door. Without missing a beat John (with a broad smile on his face) said, “Well sir, when you get to be our age, there may not be that much time left for us to think about what the life to come will be like.”
The man stared back for a moment and then broke out in broad smile. “Yeah,” he said, “you are probably right.” We did not get to talk with him in depth that afternoon, but I left that porch thinking, he won't soon forget this encounter and I chose to believe that God used that moment to plant a concern in his heart that, in time , lead him to become a seeker.
My son and I are blessed to have known John - a true gentleman, a Christian in the ways that count and a man with a great sense of humor. We look forward to seeing him again in the morning.

We send our sympathy to your family. Johnny was one of the finest Christian men we ever knew. His dedication to his Lord and to his family showed in every day actions as well as in his words. Johnny and Bernice were an example to so many in their dedication to each other. They worked in the nursery at church for so many years at Southwest Bible Church. They loved on those kids and watched them as they grew into adults.
They also loved their kids and were so proud of them. Each new birth of grandchildren and great-grandchildren was met with a sense of joy.

We thank them for the contribution they made in our lives. We will remember them as they hold a special place in our heart. Bob and Marilyn Graper
