I have no more!

My parents just called me tonight to inform me that my Grandpa passed away a few hours ago. He was my last, living grandparent and was a very sweet & gentle man.

He was found with his hand under his head - they think that maybe he had a dizzy spell or something and went to lie down. What a peaceful way to go isn't it? No pain. Well, I'm sure it was his broken heart because my Grandma passed away just this last November.

So, while I'm sad for the loss of my beloved Grandfather I'm thankful for so much. I'm thankful for knowing him and the joy that he brought to my life. He always showed love and I never saw him angry with Grandma (although I'm sure there were times), he was gentle, he always whistled, he always wore these pastel colored pants and shirts, he had a wonderful belly, jolly belly, he loved the Lord and he loved my Grandma dearly. I'm also thankful that I know he is in Heaven with the Lord ... and that he left here peacefully.

I love you Grandpa!
