Ashley, I am so very sorry about the passing of your grandfather. I too was close to grandparents on both the maternal & paternal sides of my family. Truly, it was like losing a parent so very heart wrenching. I have also lost both parents now and a 17 year old grandson. So, I know first hand what grief is about. As Christians we just have to trust God to wrap his loving arms around us to help us during this time. I will have your granny in my prayers along with you & your family. Sincerely, Judy Hatfield
