Last Christmas time I was with my grandparents in southern California.
I asked them if I could take this photo.
In February my grandmother went to be with Jesus and last night on Christmas day my grandfather joined her.
My grandparents are so precious to me. Grandpa was ornery and feisty even before dementia began to take over his brain... but he also was funny and laughed and taught me many things about life. The last time I saw him was at my grandmother's memorial service in February.
I am grateful for the moments in the last year of his life, that I got to see him in person. I look forward to one day seeing both my grandparents in Heaven.. with no more pain, sorrow, or sicknesses.
