Today my Grandfather went to be with Jesus! This has been a rough weekend for us as he layed in his own bed...waiting. He actually out lived his heart! He was told 5 yrs ago there was nothing more they could do and that his heart was bad so it was a matter of time. My grandfather was a fighter! He was an amazing  strong man. He was up at 4am doing his treadmill, mowing his huge lawn as needed and had a huge garden every year. He with his( 2nd wife) of 23 yrs stood by his side. They made amazing meals together and canned and froze what they grew! Grandpa was ALMOST 99 which his Birthday is February 6. What an inspiration to us all! I will miss you Grandpa! I love you ....
These photos were taken January 6, just a couple weeks ago. We had an after Christmas celebration, Now I will treasure these photos forever!
