Yesterday morning my Grandpa passed away; he went home to be with Jesus.
While I’m sad…so sad, and will miss his presence fiercely, I know his joy is complete in the presence of the Father in a perfectly healed body, surrounded by his family and friends.
He left us an amazing legacy of faith, humor, and service to his country and community.
I’m grateful that he was present at every major event in my life (birthdays, graduation, my engagement, wedding and the birth of my daughter) and for many of the minor ones (like showing goats, ice cream, and Shipshewana dates too!).
He will be deeply missed. I’d appreciate your thoughts and prayers for me and my family at this time. Thanks, friends.
Regular posting will resume Monday.
