For the first time in 62 years,

my Granddad is without his Sweetheart this Valentine's Day.

 For the great granddaughter of a town crier,

the granddaughter of a civil war veteran, 

 a loving mother and beautiful grandmother,

and a gracious, humble lady who never questioned the Lord's grace,

was called home this morning
 
two days shy of her 85th birthday. 
 
 And my heart aches for my Grandpa.





 ~Hug your sweethearts my dear friends~

I'm so sorry. It's hard to be separated. My dad has not gotten over my mother dieing and it's been 20 years. He's now 101 and hopefully will be able to be with her soon. Hugs to your granddad. And you.

Oh, Andrea! My heart aches for you! I just lost a good friend last week who despite being 76 years old, (almost 30 years my senior), was a very dear part of our lives and I've cried all week. So I grieve with you knowing your loss is huge and yet knowing that those in Christ will be reunited someday. Prayers going up for you, friend!

I'm so sorry for your family's loss, Andrea. For your grandfather especially. I can't imagine what it is like for the surviving spouse to have to go on alone, after living with their life partner for so many decades.

Thinking of you my friend, Amy
