In Loving Memory II

First, let me just say thank you to all of you who have e-mailed or posted a comment about my grandfather passing away on Sunday night. It is so special to me to have such a sweet community of support, and I appreciate all of you very much.

Second, I sadly must report that we have suffered another loss in my family - my Great-Grandfather Walter passed away Monday morning. He was 101 years old and a true patriarch of our family. His health was slowly deteriorating and we knew he could not stay with us much longer, but what a blessing to have had him in our lives for so long. I was one of the few people I knew of at my age with a great-grandparent still living, and I have not taken that for granted. His funeral will be Monday, the same day as my Grandpa Charlie, so I will not be able to attend, but please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers. It's been a difficult week for us and we are just giving thanks tomorrow that we had these two special men in our lives for as long as we did. It's just difficult to bury two Grandfathers on the same day...
In Loving Memory of

Words cannot express the sadness I feel for you right now. It is hard to lose a grandfather, much less 2 in the same week.

Keep your chin up and know that your friends are here for you!!

Oh Christie...you have had such a hard week. I'm so sorry to hear of yet another loss in your family. Both Grandpas sounded like men who blessed their families.

Hugs,
