If you read my blog on a regular basis, you've surely noticed my sparse writing and absence over the past few days. We took a family trip to see my in-laws, and my husband's grandfather the first week of June. We had a wonderful time with them, and knew that it would most likely be the last time we saw Grandpa. He passed away the morning after we left. The Lord was gracious to give us that time with him and we are thankful that he didn't suffer very long and he is now rejoicing in heaven with his Lord and Savior!
Grandpa was a pilot in the Navy, during WWII, so his burial service was held in Pensacola, FL, where he had been stationed. We were able to travel to the funeral and then spent several days in a condo on the beach, with Bradley's parents, sister, and oldest nephew. We had a wonderful time together remembering Grandpa, seeing some of the places where Bradley's mom had grown up, and just being together as a family.
Grandpa was a man of character who loved God, his family, and his country. I am blessed to have known him and am grateful for the legacy he left behind.
