He was a wonderful man, father, grandfather. From the daughter in law perspective looking in....he was incredibly kind and loved his family and his church and friends so much. So many lessons he left with my husband to pass on to our son. He was a great role model and I am blessed that my son will get the same great lessons and grow up to be as wonderful of a man as his daddy and his grandpa. As we lived with them in the same home for many years, our children were never in the way or burdens- he always included them, seeked them out to do things with him, to help him, be with him. I loved that about him. My children love him dearly. He will be greatly missed, such a great man.
And when my son went to bed last night he asked...'What do you think Grandma and Grandpa are doing in Heaven right now?' and I answered, 'Hugging and smiling in happiness' and my son smiled and said 'I like that'.
I do too.
