Saying Goodbye

It has been a rough couple of weeks, that's for sure.  There have been some issue's with the company that my husband works for, but I'll expand on that when all is said and done.

and...

Two weeks ago today I received a text from my dad saying that my Grandpa (my mom's dad) was diagnosed with pneumonia.  At 85 years old, that's never a good prognosis.  He had been in a rest home for a couple years and has slowly been getting worse.  He was in the hospital and then soon moved to hospice care early last week.  I received a phone call Sunday evening saying he gone home to Heaven.

A very bittersweet moment.  We are happy that he is no longer suffering, but man, it just sucks to have to say goodbye.  To put it bluntly

Saturday will be a huge celebration of his life.  All of our family will be together.  His wife, his 4 children and their spouses, his 12 grandchildren, 5 of their spouses, 4 great grandchildren and one on the way. Each and every one of us loves the Lord all thanks to him who was the foundation of our incredible family.


Grandpa, we love you and you will forever be missed!!
