This is my Grandpa
(holding my precious twin brothers)
He passed away when I was very young
and he was very young
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!
