Rest In Peace, Grandpa

On 11/11/11 my grandpa John left this world, to rise and be in heaven with my Grandma.  It was a day we knew we would be faced with soon, but nobody or no thing can prepare you for the emptiness in your heart when that day comes.  My grandpa is the strongest man I have ever known and he will always remain to be just that.  My grandpa has many remarkable things about him and has left quite the legacy.  I can only say I am so proud to have been his granddaughter and to have had him in my life for so long.  The picture below is of the very last memory I have with my grandpa....

My Grandpa's laugh is one I don't think anyone who knew him will ever forget (Grandpa is to the right, Uncle Jack holding Eva).  I am so glad Eva had the chance to share in laughter with him before it was his time to leave.  :)

Dana, Eva, and myself made it home for Grandpa's funeral last Friday.  It was a wonderful service, leaving us all at peace with our loss.  Later on that evening, a group of us gathered at my Grandpa's infamous fishing hole to release some of his ashes.  We all took a shot of Brandy in Grandpa's honor and took a moment to celebrate his life.  As the ashes were released, we all looked in the sky to see two eagles fly over our heads...It was Grandpa and Grandma letting us know they were finally back together.  Peace and happiness filled all of our hearts at that moment.

I love you, Grandpa!!!
