We'll Miss You

A million times we'll miss you.
A million times we'll cry.
If love alone could have saved you
You never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still,
In our hearts you hold a place
No one else could ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God took you home.

This past week has been a blurr...I feel like I'm in a bad dream and I wish I could wake. I loved my Paw-Paw dearly. He wasn't sick hadn't been to the dr. he was always on the go. 83 years young and worked 3 days a week. It was his time the way he would have wanted to go..quick with no sickness so I'm greatful for that! His service was beautiful! He was a WW2 vet. And was buried with his bible. Something about losing the last of your grandparents. He had such a sweet soul! What a wonderful "homegoing" he had. I love you Paw-Paw.


  1. You are going to make me cry!! I feel so bad for you and your family. I lost my Pop in 1997, and all of my grandparents were gone by 2002, but there was something so special about Pop! He was my rock, a comfort, my buddy...he was amazing!! He and I were always so close, so I truly understand your heartbreak! Praying for you and your family now more than ever!!!
