Grandpa, you're finally close to Jesus, for real this time. I don't know how to picture a world where you are not in the background, silently praying for strength and peace, not only for your loved ones, but truly for every human. May we always feel your gentle push to do the right thing, and may we always strive to live up to the life you modeled for us. You will be sorely missed, Grandpa, and we'll make sure to take good care of your sweet love Grandma.
