God saw you getting tired

And a cure was not to be

So he put his arms around you and whispered,

"Come with Me."

With tearful eyes we

Watched you slowly fade away.

Although we loved you dearly,

We would not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,

Your hardworking hands put to rest,

God broke our hearts to prove to us

He only
takes the best.

Rip grandpa. We miss you very much and love you dearly. I miss the summers in Texas hanging out in the backyard listening to your stories from serving this great nation. I miss your kind smile and calm demeanor. God has an angel. Sending my love.

We'll all miss his wonderful smile and welcoming presence. God blessed us all by allowing him to pass through our lives. Our lives are fuller for knowing him, emptier because we miss him and better because he was here to show us a loving way to follow life's journey.
