back early and sad

July 21, 2009

Mourning cut our camping trip short.

My wife’s grandfather passed away yesterday.  Viewing tomorrow, funeral Thursday.  We packed up and came home so we could be part of the farewell.

J.W. was 96 and liveda good life.  He was lonely; his wifeis in a home with Alzheimer’s.  His body just gave out on him.  He got to see the people who loved him before he passed.  How many of us will be able to say that?

He was atough but sweet old man who will be missed, but he’s in a better place now.  We will see him again one day.  For now, we remember his best moments and prepare to finish our journeys without him.
