I ache for the fact that Cali won't remember him and that the twins will never know a Grandpa. He was so good with Cali! From the beginning he took such joy in her and would get on the floor to play.
But I also rejoice that he is with Christ and feels no pain and is free from cancer. I take comfort in the fact that I will see him again. I find peace that he is with family and friends enjoying God's glory for eternity.
It has been a hard year for all of us - mom especially. But today we will have a gathering to celebrate Dad's life, share stories and find comfort in the fact that he is with the Lord.
Thank you all for your encouragement and love during this time. I hope that if you knew Dad you can have a smile on your face today as you remember him.
