An Empty Bench

My Grandfather died this week.  I have a strange mix of emotions… I haven’t experienced this kind of loss before.  The sadness comes in waves and at unexpected moments.

I will cherish the few moments I had with him in the hours before he died.  Yet another reminder of the preciousness-and brevity-of life.

I LOVE YOU MOM…It saddens me to see you grieving, but you have been strong.  I admire the strength God has given you as you have walked through these past few weeks with both Grandma and Grandpa.
