A letter to my Grandfather…

Dear Pap, I got the call that you had a heart attack. Im moments like these I realize how much your life has impacted mine! So many times we don’t say thank you enough. So… Thank you! Thank you for teaching Mother about Jesus and living a godly life. I hope to pass it on to the next generations. Thank you for showing me how to deal with death when Grandma died. Thank you for taking the time to play with your Grandchildren. I have many memories playing in the stream with Crystal and picking cherries. Thank you so much for bringing Grandma Miriam into our lives. I can’t imagine the Brechbill Family without her now. Thank you for all the scruffy kisses and popcorn you made Sunday evenings. I love you so much. Your granddaughter, Jessica (sadly my letter didn’t make it in time, He passed away yesterday afternoon. I’ll miss him terribly, but am comforted to know he is in Heaven)

He would take Grandma's hand and lean on her for support. Now he's walking on streets of gold!
