My Grampsie died today. He had been very sick and very uncomfortable for such a long time. While I am happy that he is no longer suffering, I am so sad to have lost him. He was a wonderful, caring, loving, honorable man. My heart aches for my Grandma, who is still with us though I know we will all be reunited and I am so thankful for that.
Today after I heard the news I was crying. Devin asked me what was wrong and I told him. He looked at me and asked me "Wouldn't you be sad if your daddy had to go away for a week and you couldn't see him?" I said yes, I would be sad. He then told me "Well that is how Heavenly Father feels. He missed Grampsie." Of course that made me cry even more. How in the world did I get to be so blessed to raise such a special boy? His faith and knowledge of the gospel amaze me. His relationship with our Savior and Heavenly Father amaze me. I know that having men like Grampsie and Pete and Grandpa Pants in his life have played a great part in him being who he is.
We will miss you, Grampsie. Love you forever, thanks for being my Grandpa.
