Will has reminded me that this life is temporary, and our eternal home is with Christ in heaven. Our earthly home is wonderful, but it’s nothing compared to what God has in store for us in paradise with Him. I haven’t experienced much death in my life, but I recently lost my Grandmother. After the initial sadness that came with finding out she had passed away, I thought about how much joy it must bring her to see my Papa, her friends and her son who she lost to cancer as a young child. Sweet thoughts of this reunion filled my mind and brought me so much peace. It got me thinking that one day I hope to meet Will in heaven and tell him how his life has made such a big impact on me and so many others. I’ll never forget sweet Will. I look forward to the day when I can tell my own son about his friend, Will King Hughes, and about the eternal life that is found in Jesus.
