In Memory of Grandpa

My grandpa passed away today. We are all knew it was coming, but it does not make it any easier to deal with. There are a lot of great memories we have, and many of them are from recently. I am so thankful that we were able to spend as much time with him as we did in the past few years. He really got to know Jyllian and she just adored him! I hate that he was not able to officially meet Cohl, but he was able to "meet" him with lots of pictures. I am thankful that I am able to remember him when he was out here spending time with us....his smile on his face when we walked through the door, his simple "Hell-o, How-r-u?" just thinking of it brings a smile to my face...taking him up in the mountains and him being amazed that people live that far away from town...Thanksgiving and an early Christmas..going on a Christmas tree hunt to find the perfect tree...Jyllian's birthday party and father's day...taking him to watch the Casper Rockies. I will cherish these memories along with every other memory I have of him while growing up. He was a good man and he will be missed! I love you Grandpa and miss you much...
