PapPap

My PapPap (Grandpa) passed away last night.  He was 85 years old and would have celebrated his 64th wedding anniversary in just a few weeks.  He was a true environmentalist and a wonderful man.  I had a special conversation with him recently.  He told me that he was ready to go to heaven and prepare the way for Waverly & Oliver.  He can make and fix anything, so he said he was going to build wagons and swings for the kids to enjoy.  Such a beautiful image.

Here is PapPap and Waverly (she is giving him a kiss).  He loved the kids so much.

That is so warming to know that he said that he would be there for your kids.

I'm so sorry to hear about your PapPap. You will be in my prayers! Thinking of him there to welcome Waverly and Oliver home one day is so beautiful! God rest his soul!

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss :( But what sweet words from him about preparing for Waverly and Oliver...it must make a very difficult topic just a little bit easier to think about.
