Thank you for everyone that prayed for my grandfather the past few weeks. I was able to spend an enormous amount of time talking with him and just being together. He passed away at his home on Thursday, March 21st at around 6:10 pm with my mom, my aunt, and myself at his side. It was very peaceful and we are happy to know that he is in heaven.
There is something remarkably peaceful about watching a man who loved The Lord with all his heart take his final breaths. He was at such peace the entire time and kept his eyes focused right on his eternal healing.
My grandfather loved my grandmother so much that he actually died on her birthday. She had passed away 11 years ago. I can almost picture him surprising her in heaven by arriving on her birthday. What a joyous reunion that must have been.
I know I will have some good days and some sad days the next few weeks, so there may be some days without many posts, but my assistants will be keeping an eye on things and bumping up their postings as needed if I need a day off to myself.
Thanks again for all the prayers during this time. I appreciate knowing I have such wonderful readers.
I am so sorry for your loss:(. Cancer is such an awful thing. My family will be keeping yours in our prayers.
