I don’t know what else to say about how I am feeling right now. Just pure sadness. My grandfather passed away on Friday. He was an amazing man with so many people that loved him. He is already missed so much. I am so blessed to have been able to spend so much time with him and my grandmother when I was growing up. I was even more blessed that I got to spend just as much time with him as an adult and my children were able to as well. Not everyone gets that privilege, and I know how lucky we are that we did.

Before I go, I wanted to share something. The week before Gramps went into Hospice, I took the kids over to fish with him. That was one of his favorite past times. He lived right on the St. John’s River….just step off his porch and throw in a line. He loved that! We took some pics, not knowing at the time that these would be the last pictures we would get to take with him. I’ll treasure them forever. I wanted to share just one of them.
