I apologize once again for my long absence. Life, it seems, has been super crazy and with the recent passing of my granddad, we’ve been in a grieving/adjustment phase of life.
My granddad was an amazing person and I’m sad to see him go, though I rejoice that he is with the Lord and that he is with my grandmother – his wife of 54 years – once again.
One of the things I am saddened by the most is that my children won’t remember their great-grandfather. He was a dear man who loved the Lord and who, in turn, loved his family. I think he was very proud to have lived long enough to meet two great-grandchildren.
Amazingly, my children have met 3 of their great-grandparents. This is something I’m very thankful for, as all of my great-grandparents had passed away by the time I was born.
Anyway, I wanted to share a few photos of my granddad with my kids.
Family gathering around Christmas, 2007 – Granddad with most of his grandkids and Patrick.
March 2008 – I was 7ish months pregnant with Erin here.
Granddad meets Erin for the first time. She was just a few days old.
While I miss my granddad, I am so thankful for the many years of my life that he was here. :)
