On July 4, 1826, on the 50th anniversary of our nation declaring its independence, patriots Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died.
They were the last signers of the Declaration of Independence to pass. I thought that it was no accident that God would call patriots home on the Fourth of July. At 7:30 p.m. on July 4, 2015, God called home Joe Bill Edwards, a farm boy from Grayson County. He, too, was a patriot.
