On February 26th, my last living, and most cherished, grandpa passed away and entered the heaven. I have since been trying to find the words to express my thoughts and feelings about him and to scan pictures of him that I have, but can't. It hurts too much.

Last night, I think God sent me a message that life is going to be okay. I am not sure that the photos will come through like they are supposed to (they should have some movement in them) but I think everyone will love the sentiments that are said.

So, sit back, enjoy the sayings and I promise that I will be back to my normal crazy blogging self here shortly.

Hugs, Christie
