Rest in Peace Papa George

A week ago today my Grandfather passed away. He had been pretty sick for a while. His problems included a severe cancer right behind his airway. He was really struggling and now he doesn't have to struggle any more. He is at peace! I am relieved for him but I hate it for my Grandma! They were married for 40 years and now she is alone. I can't even imagine what she is experiencing. We had a lovely service done by my little cousin. I say little because he is 11 years younger than me but he is a good bit taller than I am. Anyway, that is beside the point. He did our service and I don't know that I have ever been to a better one. He is an amazing young man! The one thing that sticks out in my mind about the service is when he said: He thinks when we are called up, Jesus won't be the first person we will see. He thinks we will be reunited with all of the loved ones we have lost and then we will ALL go worship at the feet of Jesus. That is a beautiful sentiment to me. I like the idea that when I am called up I will get to see Papa George and my brother right away. I am going to hold onto that and I hope that my Grandma will too.
