Today my Granddad passed away. He was an incredible man! My Mom called me this morning to let me know that he was taken to the Hospital last night. He was in ICU on life support until this afternoon. His passing was very peaceful and he was surrounded by his family.
Words truly cannot describe the love I have for this man - I feel so lucky that I was able to grow up with him in my life. He and my Grandmother came to our Birthday parties, Thanksgiving Dinners and every family Christmas party. He was brilliant, righteous, patient, loving and humble. A grand example to me. I'm thrilled that he knew and loved my sons. I think the greatest gift he gave me was a Father who is just like him - My Dad is the same kind of man that my Granddad is.
Of course I will miss him terribly, but what a blessing that he was finally able to go. He was ready, it was his time. I love you Granddad!
