"So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal".
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.

I pray that God gives you strength & comfort during this time. I know mere words cannot ease the pain you are feeling in your heart. I also know your parents meant the world to you. I am sure your mom met your pop at heaven's gate with open arms. Grace & Peace to you my friend.

God saw you were getting tired, and a cure was not meant to be
So he put his arms around you, and whispered come with me
With tearful eyes we watched you, as we saw you pass away
Although we love you deeply, we could not make you stay
Your golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us... He only takes the best...
Rest in Peace Grand-pop
i love you
