Goodbye Grandpa

Grandpa, Grandma and my brother Colter, last summer.


Grandpa and Grandma meet Jeremiah for the first time.


Last night, Grandpa Brown passed away. I am glad he was with family and that his suffering ended quickly rather than drawn out for many days. It is hard to believe he is no longer a part of my life here on earth. I will miss him so much, just as I miss my other Grandpa who passed away in August. My grandma was released from the hospital after only a few hours of observation yesterday after her car accident so she was with Grandpa all evening and when he died. She is fine (thanks to air bags, seat belt, and having a big vehicle) and is merely sore. I'm glad we didn't lose them both in one day.

As I'll be making a last-minute trip to MN here in the next day or two my blog will be out of comission for a while.

So sorry, cousin... I will say a prayer for His peace on you and your family during this time - and safe travels to MN and home.

I'm sorry Lindsey, but I am so thankful he was a believer. Will you be in my town at all? If so, I might be able to help you out with some huggies wipes:)

Sorry about your Grandpa, Lindsey. I know what you are going through, and will be praying for you and your family. I'm glad that your Grandma is okay.
