My Grandpa went to be with Jesus early in the morning of December 27th. The picture above was taken of me with Grandma and Grandpa at a family gathering December 19th. I feel very fortunate to have this wonderful day as my last memory of Grandpa this side of Heaven. This post has been long in coming as the new year was full of family and special time to remember Grandpa. We all shared tears and laughter as we joyfully remembered together what a special guy Grandpa was to all of us. We are so sad that he is gone and miss him terribly but hold on to the expectation that we will see him someday at the best family reunion ever!
