Granddaddy past away this past Sunday afternoon (Feb. 26, 2012). I have had problems posting so I haven't been able to keep y'all updated. The short version is that he just couldn't recover from the heart surgery.
Granddaddy is now in heaven pain free and playing with Jamie ( go back to the first posts to learn about Jamie) as he sings praises to God.
A lot of the family was together Sunday evening and I learned that one of Granddaddy's favorite songs is Silent Night. For the past four years we have sang Silent Night at bedtime. It is also Jackson's favorite song. Last night I told Jackson that his favorite song was also Granddaddy's. Jackson said, "that will help me remember him." Jeffrey then told us that his favorite song was Who let the dogs out and if Spaze (our dog) ever died the song would help him remember Spaze. Jeffrey has a way of always making us laugh no matter how sad we are at the time.
Please keep our family in your prayers and for all who will be traveling to the services on Friday.
