Our dear Grandpa went to be with Jesus this week five short months after dear Grandma passed away. And today is his funeral two days before Christmas. Our hearts are heavy but we are rejoicing that he is safe in the arms of Jesus and free from suffering and pain. He is finally reunited with his dear wife and the many who have gone before. He is celebrating Christmas with them and the angels. I love you so much, Grandpa. We will miss you terribly.
