I attended a funeral today, the funeral of John Amos Dukes of Wadley, Georgia. He was my son-in-law’s grandfather. You couldn’t have met a nicer man. He and his wife accepted my daughter into their family with open arms. My daughter and I had been planning to visit Papa and Granny Dukes just to sit down with them and hear all of the old stories that only they know. Kaitlyn and I both lead very busy lives and we just didn’t get around to it. Instead, we attended Papa Dukes’ funeral today.
