We'll Miss You Pap

OK, I know – it’s been a while. I have been busy with very important things lately. Last Monday morning, Pap (my dad’s dad) passed away at the age of 91. He was a wise, Christian man who raised six children who all love the Lord. His wife (Granny) died several years ago, and it has been a long and lonely few years for him. I am happy that they are together again, with no more pain, no more arthritis, no more heart conditions. Only joy and peace and wholeness in the presence of Jesus. We will see him again someday!

This is Madeline and Pap together Christmas of 2008

And here we are this year at Christmas along with my Aunt Sarah

It was precious to spend a couple of days with family. Whenever we get together for holidays, it is always so rushed and rarely is everyone there. Well, everyone was here and together last week. It was a sad time, but it was also a blessing to be with the ones that we love.

My sis Rachel, cousin Riley, niece Abigail, me, Madeline, cousin Hannah, and cousins Patrick, Nathan, and Jacob

I'm so sorry for your loss. Next Christmas, there'll be another baby in the mix!
