I love you so much and I’ll miss you incredibly. It won’t be the same without you. You were someone special to all of us, you were the best grandpa in the world. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. I remember always looking forward to going to your house every Monday for family get togethers when we were younger. You always giving us jellybeans, always supporting us with walk-a-thon pledges. Making sure Brandon and I always did our MathSmart and EnglishSmart homework when you babysat us, making sure we always worked hard, and that we always strived to do our best. Praying for us every night, keeping up with everything - you were the first one in the family to get an iPod, you always look forward to ecards and emails from us, you even had facebook! You were truly unique and one of a kind. You’ve lived a fulfilling life and you’ve impacted the lives of so many individuals. So many people love you and admired you - not just your kids, but your grandkids and all those around you. I’m going to miss hearing you talk essays at family gatherings, you were just always so proud of us and so happy that we were all together as a family. This whole thing was so sudden and it happened so quickly that it doesn’t seem like it actually happened.. it seems surreal. Because just a few weeks ago you seemed fine.. but God called you home to be by his side. It’s comforting to know that you’re with Him now. And now you can be with Matthew too. Though I don’t know if you guys have actually met.. but at least now he has someone that’s basically family to him as well. I pray that you look out for the rest of us and watch over us as we grow up. From JJ who’s just in grade 2, to Kristen who’s in her fourth year of university. You were an inspiration to all of us and you will continue to be my motivation to work hard and never give up.
I love you and I miss you, A-Gong.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. - Revelation 21:4
i dont know why i love this picture so much. maybe its her messy hair. or the hopeful look in her eye. you can tell she really loves dancing around the room with her friends. you can tell shes going to continue this for a really long time. that drive and compassion in her eye. its just perfect.
