I lost my second grandpa in under a year just 2 days ago.
It was an accident and he had a fall, and he passed on to be with Jesus. It was quite a shock for all of us, and still is. He was here, and then he wasn't.
We all know he is in HEAVEN because he loved Jesus, and we all knew it.
They lived just two houses away from Brent and I, and luckily we saw them often. The last being this past Sunday at a get-together.
Grandpa was a farmer...and

In my life Grandpa had MANY trucks, and he drove them into the ground, till there might have even been holes in the floor boards. I mean, WHY get a new truck when this one drives just fine?
This was one of at least 3 that we saw him drive past our house numerous times a day over to the farm.
Grandpa & Grandma raised a close family. We all love each other, and I have to say, some of my cousins are my close friends. And I have 16 first cousins. Over the last several days we've all cried and laughed too.
Humor was always the center of our get togethers too, and Grandpa ALWAYS had a joke. Brent thought they were all hilarious, but lets be honest, some were just ok. Sorry Grandpa.
He always wore overalls, and bit his tongue in a certain way, and gave us kisses.
I will miss him greatly.
His birthday was 6 days before mine, and he loved strawberries, and so I tried to make him a strawberry shortcake when I could. I'll have to make one in his memory again.
We miss you Grandpa. VERY MUCH.
