A Poem for Grandpa

My Grandpa passed away this past Thursday and we have all been coping in our own way.  Following is a poem that I wrote that illustrates the love that we have all felt this past week.  Every quote is something that was actually said during and following our final precious moments with him.  The Bible scriptures in verses seven and eight were Grandpa’s favorite scriptures.  I hope that it will encourage all those who have experienced loss.

    What a beautiful tribute to your grandpa’s life! Praying God will comfort you all and hold you close to Him.

    Lindsey, I read the poem to our Ladies Bible Class this morning. They were touched and someone asked how old you were. I am trying to keep up with the bible lessons. Surely if you take the time to put them on, I can take time to study them.

    • Aunt Doris Rose, you are so encouraging. We have all enjoyed your last few trips up here and look forward to seeing you again. I hope you will share your thoughts on my study when you can.
