Many thanks

I just want to express my sincere gratitude to all of you who left comments, sent emails and asked for prayers on our behalf since the passing of my Grandfather early this morning. It was such a shock to have him go so quickly. I am so grateful to know he's in a better place, and I am so happy to know his entire family got to see him and love on him before he went to be with Jesus.

I'm going to take a few days off, but I'll be back. The service will be soon - on Wednesday, while most of the family is still here. Thank you again - each and every comment was read the moment it was sent (because of my spiffy service on my Blackjack II) It TOTALLY made my day better.

See you all soon.

I am so very very sorry for your loss. :( No words of wisdom here, I have a funeral Wednesday as well that I'm having to deal with. Some days are just too hard, my friend. So I'll just weep with you, and hug you a little tighter.

So very sorry to hear about your Grandpa's passing. Your family's loss is truly heaven's gain. That tribute to him in the previous post was absolute beautiful. He was a special man, indeed. I have to wonder if he and my Grandpa have met in Heaven?

Hugs & blessings, sweet one.

Oh honey, I'm so sorry I'm hearing about this so late...
By the way you descibed him in your last post he must have been a wonderful person... but I'm so thankful he is in a better place and I know he's there right now along with my mother...*sigh*..

Hi sweetie! I am praying for you today. There is always so much to do and so many things to take care of when getting funeral arrangements made. It seems the days after are so difficult. The world moves on and reality settles in and it's not fair. I loved reading your tribute to your grandpa. May the God of comfort surround you with His big arms of love!
