My grandfather went to be with the Lord. He passed away at 10:22 PM on Wednesday, May 7, 2008.
Strangely, it is peaceful this time in comparison to my grandmother's funeral last November. There is nothing to rush to do. No one to rush to care for.
My eight year old said it best. "Grandpa is happier now. He is with Grandma. I'm saving the crying for the funeral and I want his John Deere tractor pillow."
They would have been married 68 years this Memorial Day. I want to leave this life with that kind of legacy.
