My dad called after church today with some sad, unexpected news. My grandaddy (June-June as everyone called him) passed away this morning. It is bittersweet. We are rejoicing that he is with Jesus, but sad that he is gone.
I am especially sad for my grandmother Mema. She has been in an assisted living facility for almost 2 years and dementia is slowly robbing her of her mind and memory. It breaks my heart to think that she will not be able to see him every single day as she has over the past 68 years that they have been married. But he was 90 years old and lived a very full life. He loved his 3 children, 10 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren. And for that, we are so thankful.
Please pray for my mom and her siblings and for my Mema, as we are not quite sure how she will process this. But God is good and He is sovereign, and knowing that they will be reunited in Heaven brings great peace.
I hope Steve and I will be married for 68 years! My grandparents are an inspiration for sure!
