Saying Goodbye to our Grandpa

I haven't blogged in a while. Josh's sweet Grandpa has passed away.
Death of someone who trusts in the Lord is such a complicated thing. Complicated in that we are rejoicing that Grandpa is in no more pain, and sits at the feet of Jesus. Grieving that he is gone from us. It is also so hard to see someone loose a parent. Josh's mom lost her mother six years earlier, and now her dad.
What an amazing life he had. Friend after friend came to the funeral home and shared stories of Grandpa. He was such a hard worker. This farmer had a fun side too, and it was neat to hear the stories of him when he was young.
We will miss him.
This is one of my favorite pictures of Grandpa that I took two years ago at his farm.
