Sure do love you, sweetheart...

My Grandaddy.
He said that to all us girls.
All my life.

He went to be with the Lord,
Sunday, February 28, 2010.
He was ready.
My Naw passed away last January & he had been planning to be gone long before her.
Frustrated him & made him desperately sad to be without her.

It's been bittersweet for me.
He was funny, loving, giving, kind, mischievious (good word Crystal), a good man.
He was a World War 2 vet. Has crazy stories about all he did.
He was in the Navy.
He used to leave us rent money when we were kids, when he & Naw stayed in our rooms.
He smelled good. His hair & clothes were always neat.
He was silly. :)
I loved him.
You know how it is to love your grandfather or grandmother.
They're just special.
I've been really missing my Naw & Grandaddy over the last few days.
Really. So glad they're in heaven & whole. But I'm really missing them.
Keep thinking about being with them. Like in the old days.
Sad & weird to grow up.
Sigh. Can't wait to see them in heaven again.
That'll be awesome.
Sure do love you Grandaddy.
Now, I must go.
I need a tissue.
Or 6...

Now I need a tissue too! We all loved him and will miss him greatly! I'm so glad he is finally at rest and with Naw again! Thank you Lord!

P.S. Those were his last words to me on Sunday!
