A Generation Passes

Just got news that my sole remaining grandparent died this morning. He would have been 90 in mid-February and had been declining quickly over the last 6 weeks or so.

So yes it was hardly unexpected. But still...
LAst time we saw him was when Monkey was a baby (so at least he got to meet all the girls, I would say all his great-grandchildren but my cousin had a baby earlier this fall/winter and I am not sure he ever saw that child) it was hoped to have a family gathering this summer as a belated birthday party.

As a generation passes so does some of the history, stories that were told but never recorded. Although I haven't seen him much in the last decade, although I didn't talk to him nearly as often as I should have, I will miss him.

Rest in God's Peace Grandpa


  1. Gord, so sorry to hear about your grandfather's death. Prayers for all you in this time.

  2. I am so sorry--esp difficult at this time of year. A most nlessed 2009 to you, your family and your congregation.

  3. So sorry Gord. Please know that you are in our prayers.

  4. Ah, Gord, I am sorry for your loss.
