It's Been 24 Years (Today) Since I've Seen His Face...

This is my Grandpa
*Roger*
(holding my precious twin brothers)
He passed away when I was very young 
and he was very young
(lung cancer)
My Mother was 30 when she lost her Father
I can't imagine what that must have been like
(Her Father was like the glue that held her family together and without him her family lost its togetherness)
I remember the last time I saw him
He had come home from the hospital and I was so happy because I thought that meant he was healthy again.
I sat on his lap and gave him a hug around his neck
Told him I loved him
He passed away shortly afterwards
I didn't go to his funeral because it was the same day as *race day* at school and I didn't want to miss winning any ribbons 
(I was the fastest then and sure to win some) 
but I felt guilty then that I didn't go
because I loved him 
and he loved me.
Shortly before he passed he made a confession of faith
((Romans 10:9 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.))
and I am confident that I will spend 
Eternity In Heaven
and so will he 
We miss you Grandpa!
Please give my brother, and my babies and my GrandmaRose a squeeze from me!

**blinking away tears**

So wonderful that he gave his life to Christ before he died, so you know you'll see him again someday.

Like Devin said, what a touching post!

Oh, Shelly, this made me cry. My Pap passed away 6 weeks before I graduated from high school. I miss him like crazy every single day. But, the promise of seeing him in Heaven one of these days brings me such comfort. My Pap passed away 12 years ago on April 23. And then my Gram just passed away on March 27. I can't wait to see her, either.
