A Tribute

Late Saturday afternoon brought the news that Andrew's grandfather passed away. He was almost 94. I'm so blessed to have known him. He was a sincere, faithful, and funny man. He had a great sense of humor, a contagious laugh, a quick smile, and a twinkle in his eye.

And I'm incredibly thankful for the trip we took to visit him and introduce him to our boys last fall. It's a trip that made lasting memories - Calvin and Patrick haven't stopped talking about it.

Goodbyes are always hard but Grandpa was ready. The family is gathering this week to celebrate the life of a great man, a loved man. It will be a good time to remember and to share and to be together.
