Today a glorious family reunion took place. The kind that no backyard bbq picnic could ever top. A reunion uniting a husband to his first love, a father to his only daughter, a grandfather to his grandaughter... and most importantly a son to his Lord. Today, my PopPop went home. Just 5 days shy of his 93rd birthday, he peacefully entered into eternity.
Just last Friday, as I bid farewell to my PopPop I reminded him of the glorious reunion he was soon to experience. His response, although slow and a bit hard to hear was, "yes, yes indeed". For as long as I can remember, my poppop ended each and every one one of his prayers with, "....and Lord, be with our loved ones who have gone before us and are now in heaven". He had experienced a great deal of loss in his life...yet today, the distance between heaven and earth diminished.
So very much to say about this man.
A long life well lived.
We will miss you PopPop, until that day...
