We miss you, Great Pawpaw

My Grandpa passed away Thursday afternoon. Of course we are all so sad, but we are glad to know that he isn't suffering anymore. Please continue to pray for my family, especially my Grandma, my Dad, my Uncle John, and my Aunt Lu.

After my Dad called to tell me the news, I sat down on the kitchen floor and cried. Wesley stood peering at me from around the island, but he didn't come over until I stopped crying so hard (I realized later that he has probably never seen me cry that hard and had no idea what was going on with me). When he came over, I had him sit on my lap and told him that Great Pawpaw had died and that he wouldn't get to see him again until he went to heaven. Wes said "it okay, Mommy. Great Pawpaw and Jesus in an airplane in the sky." Of course that made me cry even harder! Damon and I have been talking to him about death and heaven more lately, but I really didn't think he was even listening. (I just want to note for the record that an airplane was never mentioned in our talks. I guess when you're three, there is no way to get up in the sky without an airplane.)

We love you and miss you, Great Pawpaw
